Deschamps: Villas-Boas is hurting Lloris

Didier Deschamps has resumed his feud with Andre Villas-Boas over the Tottenham manager's selection choices, once again suggesting that Hugo Lloris is being underplayed.

The France coach was critical of the playing opportunities available for Lloris when the 25-year-old moved to Tottenham in the summer and has hit out at Villas-Boas a number of times this season.

In a dispute that has never looked like losing momentum, Deschamps fired back at Villas-Boas' latest comments after the Spurs boss suggested that Deschamps' advice "goes in one ear and comes out the other".

Lloris has only started one Premier League match this season, with Brad Friedel still appearing to be Villas-Boas' first choice goalkeeper and Deschamps believes that the limited playing time is hurting Lloris' performance with the national team.

Ahead of France's trip to Italy for their international friendly on Wednesday, where Lloris will captain Les Bleus, Deschamps put the pressure on Villas-Boas to change his rotation policy.

"I have two ears as well. What he [Villas-Boas] says has the same effect on me," Deschamps said. "We are not talking of a player who does not play. Since he played his excellent match against Spain [last month], he has kept goal three times.

"Hugo is playing one match per week. Of course, he would like to play more, and it is not the case for the moment. He is getting on with it as best he possibly can [but] obviously he would like to play more."
