Although Harry Redknapp has not exactly been full of praise for this player since arriving to become Tottenham manager, could the £7.8 million signing still have a future at White Hart Lane?
Heurelho Gomes has had a troubled season for Spurs, although they always say that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. It appears as though the Brazilian hasn’t done enough damage between the sticks for Redders to want to immediately get shot of him in the simmer, with the Daily Mail reporting that the goalkeeper’s jersey is still up for grabs.
The Tottenham boss said: ‘Gomes is in the team at the moment. I don’t have a No 1 goalkeeper. When I signed Carlo from Chelsea in January, it was difficult to leave Gomes out and it was hard to leave out Carlo for the game against Boro.
‘I will pick whoever is in form and whoever is right on a particular occasion.’
Many expected Carlo Cudicini to return to the Tottenham team against Middlesbrough, although Gomes has now kept consecutive clean sheets, unless you count the penalties that Manchester United scored at Wembley. Who do Spurs fans want to see in goal for the long-term, Gomes, Cudicini or someone completely different?!
