£3.5m signing comments on his Tottenham Hotspur teammate

Michel Vorm

Michel Vorm admits that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is playing well.

Michel Vorm says that Hugo Lloris is doing 'amazingly' as Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper.

Vorm was brought in at White Hart Lane this summer, but he has only played once during his time so far due to the form of Lloris.

This may have been the source of frustration to many new arrivals, but Vorm has no qualms about being back-up to a player in such fantastic form.

“I’ve just played the one game so far and Hugo is doing amazingly, and we’re working well together," he said to the club's official site. “I’m 30 years old now, almost 31, but I still like to learn and I still want to be a better goalkeeper. I definitely feel I’m always improving.”

Lloris has been Tottenham's player of the season so far, with a number of notable displays keeping opposition sides at bay.

An excellent reader of the game, Lloris is quick off his line, but he is also a phenomenal shot-stopper and arguably the finest custodian in England.

It means that Vorm's task of breaking into the starting line-up at White Hart Line is an unenviable one, and he is likely to be consigned to a back-up role whilst the Frenchman remains at the North-London club.

That is not stopping the £3.5 million signing from Swansea City enjoying himself, though, and he says that he has settled in well since moving to Spurs.

“It’s obviously a new club, new players, new goalkeepers and a new goalkeeping coach for me, so it’s something totally different to what I was used to previously – but in a good way,” Vorm said. 

“I still like to learn, even though I’ve been around for a few years, and it’s great working with Brad [Freidel], Hugo and Luke [McGee]. Just speaking about Brad and Hugo, it’s been quite natural for me to fit in.

"They’ve been in football a while so that makes it easier – and we’re all relaxed, we are easy-going guys and in a way we’re quite similar."
