Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez not returning to Tottenham after loan spell last season

28 Jul

Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez will not be returning to Tottenham this summer.

The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Spurs and he is said to have impressed manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham reportedly had the option to buy Lopez permanently this summer, but the 22-year-old has now revealed he will be staying put.

“I do not know where all this comes from, nobody has told me that [Espanyol] do not count on me and I will be here all season, no matter what,” Lopez told Diario AS.

“I am happy to be at home because Espanyol is my home and I am happy with my teammates.

“When you spend one year away you value even more when you return.

“[In London] you are out of the comfort zone and that makes you evolve on a personal level, you also know a new league and a new way of training.

“I was in a team with incredible players and a coach to whom I am thankful for the experience they gave me.”
