Radek Cerny claims he is at ease with his role as Tottenham number two.Radek Cerny claims he is at ease with his role as Tottenham number two, saying he has no concerns over playing second fiddle to Paul Robinson.
The 31-year-old arrived at Spurs from Slavia Prague at the end of January - with his role being to act as cover for England number one Robinson.
Cerny is content being asked to warm the bench, but was pressed into Premiership action for the first time on Sunday as Robinson was forced off in the romp over Aston Villa with a leg injury.
Cerny was happy with his first taste of Premiership football, but is aware that he will be back on the bench when Robinson returns to fitness.
"Robinson tried to play on, but his shin hurt a lot and he had to go off," Cerny told Idnes. "It all happened very quickly. We were leading 3-1 but after a few minutes Reid made it 4-1 and the game ended 5-1.
"Our defenders did well and all I did was catch a few harmless passes. It was easy, but it's a pity I did not have the chance to show my abilities."
Commenting on his role at White Hart Lane, Cerny added: "I have played four or five times for the reserves. Our coaches want all the keepers to play, because we have six goalkeepers.
"I'm the second keeper and I am quite at ease.
"I knew my role when I arrived. I would be glad to play more, but Robinson is a great keeper."
