While some players come others go, but there is one specific player in Tottenham Hotspur who fans really respect and appreciate for everything he's done for the club. 

His name is Michel Vorm, as the former Spurs goalkeeper has been appointed interim goalkeeping coach at Tottenham Hotspur following the sacking of José Mourinho and the appointment of Ryan Mason.

History in Hotspur Way 

Vorm, who announced his retirement from professional football in October 2020 at the age of 37, arrived to North London in 2014 from Swansea City and played 48 games across all competitions. 

The 37 year-old from the Netherlands last played a game for Spurs in a 2020 FA Cup match against Norwich City, which ended in a loss after a penalty shoot-out.

The Dutch goalkeeper recorded a total of six European appearances between both UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, as well as competing in the EFL Cup and FA Cup.

Although most likely Hugo Lloris will play all the remaining fixtures for Tottenham Hotspur this season, Vorm will help in the development of academy goalkeepers including Alfie Whiteman and Joshua Oluwayemi. 

Vorm is also expected to help boost the confidence for the entire squad, considering he is one of the people with the most amount of experience in the Spurs locker room.

''I know the dressing room and a lot of the players here,'' Vorm said.

''They respect me a lot... What we need for the next few weeks is somebody the players can trust and feel comfortable with - not just the goalkeepers, but also the outfield players.''

Vorm isn't the only experienced goalkeeper in the squad, since the former England International Joe Hart has been Lloris' back-up this season.

Hart, who is only three years younger than Vorm and arrived to Hotspur Way last summer, played 10 games this season across all competitions, and is under contract with the team until June 2022.
