New shot-stopper Guglielmo Vicario sends a message to Tottenham fans
Guglielmo Vicario, Tottenham Hotspur’s new goalkeeper has taken to Instagram to send a message to the Tottenham Hotspur fans for making his first few months at the club a ‘fun’ experience.
Some sections of the Spurs faithful raised eyebrows, wondering why the club opted for Vicario instead of David Raya. It seemed, to some, like a decision based on financial prudence rather than sporting ambition.
However, as the first few rounds of the Premier League unfolded, Guglielmo Vicario quickly silenced the sceptics and justified the club’s faith in him. The Italian shot-stopper, who honed his skills at Empoli in Serie A, has displayed his mettle between the posts in a Tottenham jersey, proving that he is more than just a budget-friendly choice.
One aspect of Vicario’s game that has won the hearts of Spurs fans is his ability to make crucial saves. Time and again, he has demonstrated his shot-stopping prowess, denying opponents what seemed like surefire goals.
Whether it’s a blistering strike from the edge of the box or a close-range header, Vicario has shown that he possesses the reflexes and agility to be a top-class goalkeeper in the Premier League.
But it’s not just his ability to make saves that have endeared him to the Lilywhites faithful; it’s his calm and composed decision-making under pressure.

He exudes confidence when receiving passes from his defenders, and his distribution has been nothing short of exceptional. This newfound dimension to Tottenham’s play has added an extra layer of security to their possession-based style.
Alasdair Gold at Football. London revealed that Spurs’ manager, Ange Postecoglou, has entrusted the 26-year-old goalkeeper with a role in the club’s new leadership group. This demonstrates not only the level of trust Vicario has earned in a short time but also his potential to be a long-term figurehead for the team.
