Tottenham’s No 1 goalkeeper, Heurelho Gomes, isn’t happy about his recent demotion from the starting XI to the bench. After injuring himself, Redknapp went out during the January window and signed former Chelsea keeper, Carlo Cudicini, as a second option. Since then things haven’t been the same for Gomes. He’s gone so far as to tell Tottenham that they need to use him or lose him. Supporters might be happy losing him!
“It was disappointing to be left out of the Arsenal match earlier this month because I had told Harry I was ready to come back into the team,” said Gomes.
“I feel the club supports me and the chairman has told me I am his No 1.
“I don’t feel threatened by Carlo because it is important for a club like Tottenham, with aspirations to challenge for honours, to have quality replacements for every position.
“I have at least three years left in my contract and intend to see them through. You are not going to see me happy on the bench, that’s for sure.
“The absence of a keeper to stand in when I had a hip injury was one of our biggest problems this season.
“Having said that, I was signed to be the club’s No 1 keeper and expect things to remain this way.” (Daily Telegraph)
Tottenham paid £8m for Gomes last season, and while he hasn’t been horrible this year, his games have been less than memorable. The howler last week against Shakhtar was another mishap that has caused Redknapp to question if the large investment by the club was worth it. What do Tottenham supporters think about Gomes? Should the club give him another chance or let him go?
