The Three Amigos
We now have The Three Amigos at White Hart Lane, Hugo Lloris, the undisputed number one, Michel Vorm, who has improved his game since being at Spurs, not significantly regressed as some Twitter bod tried yo tell me, and our new Spaniard Pau Lopez, the sort of name you expect to see in a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.
Our new number three is highly regarded by Mauricio Pochettino and he fits in with out policy of finding and signing the next generation of players so we develop a conveyor belt of talent. It is an ambitious project, but one that Pochettino seems on top of.
He may only be here on a season-long loan but the purchase option means if he progresses in the season he is here he has the chance to develop into our future number one. That is clearly the plan, it is up to Lopez to learn all he can this season.
That will take the right mentality, the fact that he was determined to leave Espanyol to come to Tottenham, in the same way Janssen wanted to come to the club augurs well. Clearly there is a drive there. He'll develop if he is motivated to do so and all he has said seems to imply he is motivated to learn and improve his game. He has two international goalkeepers to help him.
Our skipper welcomed him on the official site.
“I know a bit about him already as he played in LaLiga last season for Espanyol and he’s a young keeper with a lot of quality. We will try to make him comfortable on the pitch and off the pitch.
"It’s important to make him feel quite settled within the squad – it’s a new experience for him outside his country and I think it’s good for Michel (Vorm), for me and for Toni (Jimenez) too. He will train with us and he will help us to continue our improvement.”
