Coach's corner

Posted on 1 October 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Hans Segers happily reflected on 'one of those days' for Kasey Keller at Manchester City.

Our American number one produced a string of fine saves to deny the home side and help earn a valuable point.

"It was one of those days," said goalkeeping coach Hans. "Kasey was delighted to get a clean sheet and he made some incredible saves.

"Everything went for him and even when he made a slight mistake, the ball was cleared off the line or went over the bar. Overall, we were very, very pleased."

The pick of Kasey's saves was a tip around the post from Steve McManaman's close-range effort and Hans pointed out that the timing of the stop was crucial.

"For me, the save from the McManaman was the best," added Hans. "It was from point blank range and he just managed to get a few fingers around it.

"It's important to make these saves at crucial times and that was just before half-time, so if you concede then away from home it is very difficult to come back."
