Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has maintained that Heurelho Gomes does feature in his future plans at the club, following the Brazilian goal-keeper’s clean sheet for Spurs in their 1-0 win over Rubin Kazan at White Hart Lane last night, report the Evening
Throughout last season, Gomes was unquestionably Tottenham’s number one keeper, missing only 12 games for the club in all competitions, However this figure already sits at nine for the current campaign, with Brad Friedel having distinguished himself as Redknapp’s first choice keeper, consigning Gomes to compete with Carlo Cudicini for the role of American’s deputy.
Nevertheless, on the basis of his performance against Rubin last night Gomes offers a quality option for Redknapp to use between the sticks, something which the Spurs boss recognises and has never doubted. “I would like to think [Gomes] has a big future at Tottenham. Gomes is top class when he is on his game. He is a great goalkeeper,” Redknapp declared after the Brazilian helped Spurs take a big leap to qualification to the knock-out stages of the Europa League.
