Tottenham Hotspur bench player Michel Vorm says he is happy with his role at the club

Michel Vorm

The Dutchman is number two to Hugo Lloris.

Hugo Lloris has earned himself a rightful reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in the world during his time at Tottenham Hotspur. The former Lyon stopper is also the French national team captain and his excellent form has made him undisputed number one at White Hart Lane.

However in the domestic cups the attention has shifted to Michel Vorm.

The Dutchman, formerly of Swansea City, spends most of his time sitting on the bench, but is an able deputy when asked to step up to the plate.

For many a goalkeeper this is not a role that is accepted, especially for someone who is a fully-fledged Dutch international.

But Vorm has been speaking to the official Tottenham Hotspur website this week and made it clear he is happy with his situation at the club.

He stated:

"I chat with Hugo and I know that he’s happy for me and happy with the way we work with each other, as well as with the gaffer and Toni.

"I know my place but I think I’m also an important player in the squad – I’m the oldest and, with the experience I have, I try to talk about things with the other players and prepare for every game behind the scenes, which is where I feel I can be important to the team as well.

"Every week we prepare Hugo very well and he’s having an amazing season. I know nothing is going to change in that sense but I know that if it does change and I get a chance like I did against Leicester in the FA Cup, then I need to be there."

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino recently commented that having a balanced and friendly atmosphere in his changing room was key to Spurs' success this season.

With that in mind it is good to hear that even the second-choice keeper is happy with his role at the club. Just yet another indication of the good vibes in the Tottenham camp.
