Tottenham fire goalie coach, not goalie

It's time to dump on Tottenham again, mainly because of their wonderful, calamitous goalkeeper. While Spurs have recalled a keeper out on loan to cover for Heurelho, it's important to know it's not all his fault.

Spurs recognize that too; just this morning they fired their goalkeeping coach, Austrian glove guru Hans Leitert. (By the way, I love that he's a goalkeeping coach and his name is essentially "hands")

Poor lad. Gomes couldn't save Simon Davies' speculative cross/shot, and he couldn't save Hans' job.

After the jump, a Gomes tribute video. Where did that world class keeper disappear to anyway?
