27-year-old reveals how phone call with Postecoglou left him convinced to join Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario has been revealing some of the first contacts he had with Ange Postecoglou ahead of his move to the club.

Vicario was one of the first signings of the Postecoglou era when he joined from Italian club Empoli in a £17.2m deal (Sky Sports).

The Italian has revealed that Postecoglou personally called him prior to sealing his move to Tottenham and impressed the goalkeeper with his knowledge of him.

Postecoglou, who has had to work his way up in the professional game to make it to the Premier League compared himself to the struggles Vicario has experienced in becoming a top-flight player which left him without a shadow of a doubt that this was the right move for him.
