Villas-Boas hits back at critics over Hugo Lloris injury

Andre Villas-Boas has launched a scathing attack on those who criticised his decision to keep Hugo Lloris on the field after being knocked unconscious by Romelu Lukaku on Sunday. Lloris needed treatment on the pitch and the Tottenham manager said afterwards the Frenchman could not remember anything.

Spurs insist Lloris was fit to continue playing following thorough checks by club doctor Shabaaz Mughal and physio Geoff Scott. It is this criticism of the club's medical staff, who saved Fabrice Muamba's life at White Hart Lane two seasons ago, that has angered Villas-Boas so much.
