"He told me "boss it's a massive lesson for me, I made a mistake and need to pay" and now he's accepted (it) like a man that he is".
Though the club have revealed he will be "unavailable this weekend", the short-term nature of this statement suggests that the 22-year-old might still return for Spurs' opening Champions League game against Inter on Tuesday night.
Tottenham will also be without Dele Alli, who picked up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty with England.
"We are disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe against Inter in the Champions League".
"He is the first to regret about all that happened", Pochettino told reporters at the club's training ground ahead of Saturday's home clash with Liverpool. He made a mistake and he's suffered the punishment of society.
Lloris was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months on Wednesday after being convicted of drink-driving in his Porsche in the early hours of a morning last month.
"He's punishing himself. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people".
In addition, English midfield supremo Dele Alli will also be absent for Tottenham after withdrawing from the England squad with a hamstring string, following England's defeat to Spain.
He added: "Lloris will have another scan to see the evolution of his injury".
The Reds won all four of their opening Premier League matches before the recess, ensuring they now stand top of the fledgling table.
