"First of all I want to congratulate him, because it's such an important victory to avoid the military service", Pochettino said.
It means the Frenchman's deputy Michel Vorm is set for an extended spell in the team and is likely to play in the glamour games against Inter Milan and Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League, while Alli is also expected to miss Tuesday's tie with the Serie A side.
"Rather than congratulate him and the club, people need to congratulate me and say thank you because I allowed him to go there and put his individual situation in front of the collective".
Pochettino said that Lloris has beaten himself up over his mistake but deserved a second chance.
