Tottenham Players Welcome Fernando Llorente With Open Arms

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris sent boss Mauricio Pochettino a text to express his delight at the club's capture of Fernando Llorente. The Spain striker joined for £14m from Swansea as Spurs gazumped rivals Chelsea on transfer Deadline Day.
Llorente will bring some much-needed experience to a Tottenham squad which has shown a tendency to challenge for silverware only to fall short at the final hurdle. Llorente boasts more major trophies than the majority of his team-mates combined, having won the World Cup and European Championship with Spain, the Europa League with Sevilla and three Serie A titles at Juventus.

Pochettino said “It's amazing, Hugo Lloris was with the national team and sent a text to me, 'gaffer, is it true about Llorente?' I said 'yes, we signed Llorente'. He said: 'Wow, fantastic player.' "That is the impact that he has on the changing room because all the players respect him. Then they start to meet him, how he is, he is very warm, very friendly, it was fantastic. It's a big impact for our changing room.”
