The Frenchman was acquired by Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas from Olympique Lyon on the final day of the summer transfer window, but has found himself warming the bench  because of Brad Friedel's fine form.

Despite the likes of Didier Deschamps and Fabien Barthez hinting that Lloris deserved to displace Friedel as Tottenham's first-choice goalkeeper, Villas-Boas has limited the custodian's playing time to Europa League games. 

Lloris admitted that the lack of time on the pitch was not ideal, but he would not be rocking the boat so quickly after joining the club.

"I'm not crazy, I didn't come here to stay on the bench," Lloris said to beIN SPORT.

"I'm very calm about my situation. I've just moved, everything is positive."

Having made more than 144 starts for former side Lyon, Lloris was confident he would achieve regular playing time soon.

"Of course, I'd prefer to play more. At Lyon I was playing every three or four days," Lloris shared.

"Now I know that it's just temporary and that things will go back to normal."

Tottenham welcome Aston Villa for their Premier League fixture this weekend.
