Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says that it is "difficult" to deal with manager Andre Villas-Boas's constant snubs from the first team.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed that life is "difficult" at White Hart Lane due to manager Andre Villas-Boas's refusal to award the shot-stopper with a regular starting place.

The Frenchman, who moved to North London from Lyon in the summer, has been overlooked on numerous occasions by Villas-Boas, who has favoured veteran Brad Friedel in the pecking order.

"Right now, we take what there is to take. Is it hard? Yes, a little," Lloris told L'Equipe. "I'm training, I do the maximum, and the coach has made his choice.

"This is difficult, and it's also difficult to accept, but such questions must also be asked to the coach. I just stay professional. When you're a competitor, you want to be on the pitch."

The 25-year-old has made most of his appearances in the League Cup and Europa League.
