The Loris drama
The captain of the France team, who will lead the “blues” again in Qatar, experienced a family tragedy early in his career, which he overcame thanks to football.
Pink October has been in full swing since the beginning of the month. This communication campaign, designed to make women aware of breast cancer screening, probably speaks to Hugo Lloris in particular. When he was only 21 years old, the goalkeeper of the French team really lost his mother, dragged down by the disease. A heartbreak for the one who was then playing in Nice.
“My mother died in April 2008, she had been ill for several years. She radiated such strength that we said to ourselves ‘she will be able to overcome the disease again because she has done it before,’ he recently confided to the M6 cameras, adding: ‘We never prepare to lose our loved ones. “Losing That Mother” a fighter determined to assert herself in a patriarchal environment “It still represents an intimate wound for the Spurs goalkeeper.

In any case, that’s what I’d like to do. »
