Tottenham Hotspur have two very exciting young stoppers on their books.
Tottenham Hotspur’s goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez has been speaking to the club’s official website about the club’s next generation of stoppers, and how they are learning from senior stars Michel Vorm and Hugo Lloris.
Tottenham have some very exciting players coming through their ranks but their young ‘keepers are rarely mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Josh Onomah and Cameron Carter-Vickers. However, both Luke McGee and Tom Glover could be set for bright futures in the game.
McGee is a 20-year-old who has made 21 appearances for the club’s under-21s, keeping seven clean sheets in the process.
As for Glover, the Australian is only 17 but he is making considerable waves at White Hart Lane and he is becoming a regular fixture in the under-21 line-up this season.
Both players will know they have a long way to go before they have a chance of getting in ahead of Lloris and Vorm, but Jimenez told tottenhamhotspur.com that both players are regularly learning from their more experienced teammates.
“Often Luke and Tom are shown videos of themselves to see where they need improvement and then they are shown an example of how to do something properly, which is almost of Hugo or Michel,” Jimenez said.
“It shows them that although the process will be difficult, it is not impossible because they also came through it. If they have passion and desire to train it is clear they may one day reach the heights of Hugo and Michel.”
That will no doubt be the aim for both young players, and it will be interesting to see what the next few years have in store for them.
