Kasey's Style Council

Posted on 5 January 2002  - 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).

On his return to England from Spain, Kasey Keller explained that he had to adapt to a more technical game when he switched from Leicester City to Madrid side Rayo Vallecano.

In Spain there are not the variables that players encounter in the Premiership, they employ a more cultured style and a less robust approach the the game.

Goalkeeper Kasey, who has just broken into our first team, admitted that it took a bit of getting used to after his spells at Millwall and Leicester.

Speaking to the USA international after his first clean sheet for the first team against Blackburn, Kasey happily stated that the transition from the style of Spanish football to that of Tottenham has been an easy one to bridge because he feels they are quite similar.

"This is a very, very technical team, so that makes it nice," said Kasey of Spurs. "I don't know how to say it, but this team plays more like a Spanish team would, as opposed to maybe like a true English team would.

"The manager wants the ball down on the ground, he wants it played and that's the way we're doing it."

Kasey is very impressed with the abilities of his new team mates and goes as far as to say he hasn't encountered any difficulty in adapting at all.

"It hasn't been difficult because when you're playing with the players you're playing with you know you can pass them the ball, you know you don't have to lash it up the field, you know you can bring it down and pass it out because they want it.

"It makes it very nice for myself."
