France international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is no stranger to the award designated by fans on

He had already been named Player of the Month for October, and he was back at it in November with 25% of the votes ahead of Lisandro with 20%. He shined against Sochaux and Real Madrid, despite the losses. Against the Spanish league leaders, he kept the scoreline respectable with no less than 20 important saves! He was reassuring force against Ajax with, notably, a brilliant one-on-one save against Sulejmani and against Auxerre he produced a wonderful save to deny Traoré free-kick while OL led 1-0. There was little he could do against Rennes.

In November, Hugo played 5 entire matches, with a new teammate on the bench in the form of ex-TFC man Valverde. Hugo has now played 193 L1 matches after the 3-2 win over Toulouse.

The former Nice shotstopper also kept two cleansheets in France's international friendlies (France 1-0 USA and France 0-0 Belgium) while wearing the captain's armband.
