Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest comments to emerge from Lilywhites goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
This comes after the official Tottenham Twitter account shared a post on its page that contained a video of Gollini speaking to the club’s media after their win over Wolves in the Carabao Cup that saw Spurs go through after winning their penalty shoot-out 3-2.
He also described his thought process during the penalty drama, having been close to keeping out Hwang Hee-Chan’s effort, claiming he was ‘angry with himself’ and that he ‘had to save another one’ – which he duly did.
This post then grabbed the attention of many Tottenham supporters, who were not shy in sharing their responses.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to this video of Gollini and his comments after the Wolves game?
“I like this guy.”
“Best goalkeeper in Europe by the way”
“The future is in safe hands”
“Great Game Gollini”
“Love this guy”
Looking at the replies to this post from the club, it seems as though these Spurs fans were impressed with what they saw from the shot-stopper during the match at Molineux in midweek as well as what he had to say after it.
Given how the Evening Standard gave the Italian a match rating of 7/10 saying that it was “hard to directly fault him for either goal” from Wolves and that he was the “hero” of the shootout, it’s safe to say the 26-year-old had a fairly successful night overall.
Would you like to see Spurs sign Gollini permanently?
Moving forward, if Gollini can continue to impress in any opportunity he gets to play throughout the remainder of the season, he could well persuade the club to use their option to sign him on a permanent deal next summer when his loan deal ends, especially if they see him as a potential successor to Hugo Lloris, whose contract runs out next summer.
