Hugo Lloris has had a shocking career exchange after becoming the boss of a beach restaurant in his country, France.
According to reports, the 36-year-old French International is one of the new owners of the Beaulieu-sur-Mer restaurant La Javanaise.
Hugo Lloris, the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper has been linked to a move away from the London club and has since taken over as director of a beachside restaurant.
The restaurant is located between Nice and the Principality of Monaco on the beautiful French Riviera.
In addition to the main dining room, there are also the lounge and the beach.
The restaurant’s menu features some of Michelin-starred chef Jean-Philippe Blondet’s signature dishes that pay homage to the cuisine of the Mediterranean.
However, the restaurant’s prices are relatively exorbitant. The majority of the entrees cost more than £30. The grilled lobster costs £77 per order and is another option on the menu.
The business move may increase speculation that Lloris, 36, may leave Tottenham this summer.
