Tottenham should pay a bonus to the scout who found Guglielmo Vicario.
Soccer stats site Hoopscore.com on Monday (June 26) revealed the top five players with the best save percentage among Premier League (PL) goalkeepers for the 2023-24 season. The list was based on goalkeepers who allowed at least 20 shots on goal.
At the top of the list is Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker. Alisson’s save percentage was a whopping 84.6%. Thanks to his performance, Liverpool has conceded fewer goals this season than Manchester City (3).
In second place is Tottenham’s new goalkeeper, Vicario. His save percentage was 80%. Alisson and Vicario are the only goalkeepers in the PL in 2023-24 with a save percentage above 80%. This shows just how good he is.
Heading into the 2023-24 season, Tottenham had to seriously consider the future of Hugo Lloris. Yoris had been on the decline since the 2021-22 season and wasn’t providing the same stability as he had in the past. The Spurs tried to develop a successor to Yoris by loaning or signing a number of players, but all of them failed.
Eventually, Yoris decided to leave the team and Spurs needed to find a replacement. Spurs decided to go with a lesser-known goalkeeper in Vicario. Unless you follow the Italian scene, not many people knew who Vicario was.바카라사이트
Vicario is a wait-and-see player who came up through the lower leagues. He broke into the first team in the 2020-21 season. He was a regular in Empoli’s first team from 2021-22, and it was only last season that he started to be recognized as a truly league-level goalkeeper. That’s when he was spotted on Tottenham’s radar, and they made the move.
“It’s a dream to meet the Tottenham fans,” said Vicario shortly after joining Spurs. I’ve seen on television how passionate they are. I want to share everything with my teammates, and I want to make a lot of saves to win.” So far, he’s been in top form. It’s also one of the best value signings Tottenham have made in a long time.
