Michel Vorm insists he is happy with Tottenham Hotspur squad role

Michel Vorm

The Dutch international plays back-up to Hugo Lloris.

Michel Vorm has spent the majority of this season on the Tottenham Hotspur bench with the Dutch international playing a back-up role to team captain Hugo Lloris.

The French international has been in great form this season and is clearly a favourite at the club – much to the detriment of Vorm.

But, speaking to Voetbal International this week, the Dutchman made it clear he was getting used to his role as back-up stopper at White Hart Lane.

He stated:

“You grow into it. No more weekly goalkeeping last season was something new, but you get used to it. At one point, you know what is involved. And maybe it sounds weird, despite my role as a reserve I feel everyone very much appreciates me at Spurs.

"I like to think I also have a stake in his (Lloris’) success. In preparation for games, the sharp keeping Lloris. And of course I make sure I'm ready when my chance comes. "

Vorm himself is a very experienced and adequate goalie. He has 15 caps for the Netherlands and the 32-year-old was one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League during his time at Swansea City.

When he made the 2014 switch to Spurs he would have known at the time that he was not coming in to play as the regular first-choice – which surely has helped him understand his position.

Despite not playing regularly in the league Vorm has still managed to feature in seven games for the club this season – mainly in the domestic cup competitions – and appears to be happy in his role at White Hart Lane.

Spurs fans will hope he continues to support Lloris into next season.
