Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario’s performances have not been unnoticed in Italy, where he is now being praised for his start to life in the Premier League.

Corriere dello Sport cover the player today, labelling him a ‘perfectionist’ who is proving the early doubters wrong.

Vicario joined Tottenham in the summer transfer window as a replacement for Hugo Lloris, whose age and determination to move on necessitated a change.

There were initial doubts from Tottenham’s fans regarding the deal and the player, but they have been quickly dismissed as he has impressed during their strong start to the season.

That’s been noticed in his homeland, and Corriere state that even Vicario is starting to think that it’s his turn to be Italy’s number one.

They say to support that belief you need ‘technical and mental skills’ and he is showing them, both with his performances on the pitch and the manner in which he is training and proving his value.

His start to life at Tottenham has been ‘one to remember’, with Spurs fans calling him their best foreign signing, courtesy of ‘immediately extraordinary’ saves, such as the one vs Manchester United, and his command of the English language.

The latter has developed quickly thanks to the player’s determination not to be ‘caught unprepared’, he is labelled as a ‘perfectionist’ who always studies the details. That’s something he did ahead of his move and continues to do it’s paying off.

Then there’s the relationship with Ange Postecoglou, with is ‘also special’ as a spark was ‘immediately struck’ between the true.

Theirs is a ‘trust sincere feeling’ forged from a similar path in the game characterised by a lot of apprenticeship and ‘great sacrifices’.

It’s all very positive on the goalkeeper, who seems to be making as big an impression in Italy as he is in England and is seemingly earning the praise as a result.
