Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has said that he "made a mistake" as he was arrested for drink driving.
The France World Cup winning captain was caught behind the wheel over the limit in London at the end of August .
Subsequently, he has yet to feature for either club or country, with an injury keeping him pinned to the sidelines .
However, he has indicated his desire to come back strongly from the incident, which is one that he deeply regrets.
“I want to apologise from my heart to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all the supporters,” he previously said via a statement from the club .
“Driving under the influence of alcohol is totally unacceptable and I take full responsibility for my actions. This is not the example I want to set.”
Speaking to RMC on Monday, he stated: “Like everyone, I have my private life. I made a mistake. You have to accept responsibility for it. I have to stay focused on the most important things to me, the pitch, my friends, my family. I always want to go out onto the field to have fun and keep improving myself.”
Lloris is hopeful that he might return for the weekend’s home clash against Liverpool but has previously said that there is only a “chance” that he might feature in the Wembley clash.
He has featured on 257 occasions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, keeping 91 cleansheets in the process.
On the international stage, he has turned out 104 times for France, having debuted in November 2008.
In July, he became just the second French captain to pick up the World Cup trophy, having helped the team to a 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final of that competition – a game in which he made a tremendous error when his side were coasting to the prize.
