Spurs ace insists he deserves another chance.
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Michel Vorm hopes he will get another chance in the side despite accepting the blame for his side’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat at home to Leicester City.
The Dutchman has been used in the cup games by manager Mauricio Pochettino this season, but made a spectacular individual error for his side late on against the Foxes, fumbling a weak shot into the goal as Spurs exited the FA Cup at just the fourth round stage.
Still, the North Londoners have a Capital One Cup semi-final against Sheffield United to think about for their next game, and Vorm believes he has done enough over the course of the season to remain in the team for that game.
Although it may be tempting for Pochettino to include regular first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris instead for that crucial match, Vorm insists there is nothing wrong with how he is doing in training and hopes he gets another chance.
“I said sorry to the boys, but they were saying, ‘Don’t be silly, you did very well’. But you feel a responsibility,” the 31-year-old was quoted by the Daily Mirror.
“They did not say to me before the start of the season that I will play in the FA Cup and Capital One, but I hope they still give me the chance.”
Vorm is a proven Premier League stopper, and it would probably be harsh to consider him a liability following his blunder, although in Lloris, Spurs have one of the very best keepers in world football.
