Tottenham boss speaks out on promising talent


Tottenham Hotspur have a number of promising young players at the club, but perhaps none more so than breakthrough goal keeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

While 26 isn’t old in terms of football in general, it is relatively young for a starting Premier League goal keeper.

Gazzaniga has been rewarded with a number of first team chances so far this season, none more so than during an injury spell for both Lloris and Vorm.

The Argentine took full advantage of his chances, recording three man of the match awards in his first three starts.

Gazzaniga was also given the nod ahead of Vorm in the Carabao Cup last week, as Spurs saw off West Ham to reach the quarter finals.

Hugo Lloris received a red card last time out against PSV, so Pochettino must choose between Gazzaniga and Vorm in goal tonight in the Champions League.

The Spurs boss recently talked to FootballLondon about the Argentinian shot stopper.

He said: “I think his progression was fantastic. Of course the credit is always for the players, but [we have] to give big credit to Toni Jiminez, the goalkeeping coach, who’s helping all the keepers to improve and grow.

“I think after one year and a half with us, I think his progression is fantastic and we were right when we signed him, because we believed and we knew him from Southampton.

“He’s still young for a keeper and has the potential to be top.”
