Michel Vorm satisfied with debut season after showing Spurs fans 'who he is'

Michel Vorm

After joining from Swansea City this time last year, the Netherlands international feels he has done well in his 14 appearances for Tottenham.

Michel Vorm has told the Tottenham website that he is fairly content with his first season as a Spurs player, letting supporters inside the pressures that come when a player moves club.

The Dutchman joined from Swansea last summer, having just taken part in the Netherlands' bronze medal performance at the World Cup in Brazil.

And though he earned less appearances on the pitch than he was used to in South Wales, the 31-year-old felt that he gave a good account of himself when he did get game time.

“I think that I’ve shown who I am and what I can do over the last year,” Vorm told the Spurs website. “Obviously people will have seen me play before, but it’s always good to show what you can do in games in front of your own supporters.

“I can say that, with the 14 games I’ve played, it’s not bad for my first season at Spurs. When you’re new at a club, it’s not easy. You need to settle in, you bring your family to a new area, change homes, the whole package, so it was quite a ride last season."

Vorm made it clear that he was determined to work hard in training in the event that he would be called again to deputise for first choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

“As a goalkeeper, for me it’s all about working hard every day on the training pitch and if you get the chance to play you try to do as well as you can," he added.

Will Vorm get more game time next season?

The former Swan got appearances in each competition in the last campaign, but had to wait all the way until March to make his first appearance in the Premier League, with Lloris going off injured against Leicester with a knee injury.

With rumours surrounding the Frenchman's future, there is a possibility Vorm may be set to feature much more often in the new season that he would have expected, or Spurs fans have hoped for. But with a goal conversion rate of 15 goals in 14 games, compared to the ex Lyon stopper's 55 in 44 matches, perhaps the Tottenham net is in good hands whoever is in front of it.
