Cudicini pens new one-year deal

The 37-year-old former Chelsea shot-stopper is now committed to the
White Hart Lane club until the summer of 2012. Cudicini, a January
2009 signing, has been largely forced to act as back-up to Heurelho
Gomes, but displaced the error-prone Brazilian for the final three
matches of this season. A short statement on Tottenham’s official
website read: “The club is delighted to announced that Carlo
Cudicini has signed a one-year contract extension which runs until
2012.” Cudicini, who was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident
in 2009 and as a result was unavailable for eight months, played 13
times in 2010/11. The Italian featured in both legs of Tottenham’s
UEFA Champions League matches against Inter Milan after Gomes was
sent off at the Giuseppe Meazza and suspended.
