Tottenham keeper coach Parks admits admiration for Newcastle No1 Krul

Tottenham goalkeeper coach Tony Parks has admitted his admiration for Newcastle United No1 Tim Krul.

Krul has quickly built a reputation as one of the best goalkeepers around.

"He's been as good as any goalkeeper in the Premier League, he's right up there," Parks told the Spurs website.

"He's a lad I know quite well because when I was working at the FA, we played Holland on a number of occasions and came up against him. I thought he did particularly well when he broke into the team when they were in the Championship.

"Newcastle have also managed him perfectly from a goalkeeper's point of view. They played him, rested him, played him and this season they've given him the freedom to go and produce.

"He's tall, strong, he's got all the tools to be one of the top goalkeepers in the world in years to come."
