‘Helps everyone’: Paratici thinks new signing could be really important for Tottenham Hotspur on and off the pitch

Fabio Paratici has been speaking to Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter account about the club’s new recruits.

One of the players who Paratici thinks could be really important this season is Fraser Forster.

The 34-year-old goalkeeper joined on a free transfer from Southampton.

He’s likely to be Hugo Lloris’ back-up this season, unless Tottenham’s club captain picks up an injury.

However, Paratici is a big fan of Forster and thinks his influence on the team goes further than on the pitch.

Paratici said: “Fraser is someone who has played a lot of Premier League matches, Champions League matches, national team matches.

“He is a guy who has a lot of enthusiasm, he helps everyone a lot, and will be very helpful for us in the group.

“He has shown in the past that he is a great goalkeeper.”

Forster could be really important for Spurs

Forster’s impact off the pitch has already been seen by Tottenham fans.

The goalkeeper went straight over to Son Heung-min after he was substituted against Fulham to console the forward.

He’s also impressed Antonio Conte on the training ground too, who said it was the ‘best choice’ to bring him in.

Forster is unlikely to be given an opportunity in the Champions League this season given the importance of the competition.

Tottenham’s Carabao Cup campaign begins in November and that could offer Forster a chance to make his debut.

If anything does happen to Lloris, Forster does have plenty of experience if he needs to step up.

Forster has turned out in several Champions League and Europa League campaigns for Celtic.

He’s was in goal for Celtic famous victory over Barcelona, although that was ten years ago.

Regardless, Paratici believes that Forster will be important for Tottenham this season no matter what direct impact he has on results.
