Giovani Lo Celso sends message to Spurs fans after debut

Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Man City had a fair few talking points at the weekend, much like when the clubs met in the Champions League last season.

The Citizens were all over Spurs from minute one and eventually got the goal they deserved through a Raheem Sterling header.

However, against the run of play, Erik Lamela managed to wrong-foot Ederson to sweep home an equaliser just four minutes later.

Man City set up the battering ram once again and once again they got through via a Sergio Aguero tap in after some sloppy Spurs defending.

Lucas Moura would prove to be Tottenham’s hero away to a Manchester club yet again though, as he came on and scored from a corner just 19-seconds later.

The drama wasn’t done there though, as Jesus scored a late winner for Pep Guardiola’s men, only to see it chalked off for handball in the build-up thanks to VAR.

New boy, Giovani Lo Celso, watched the majority of this from the bench, but he was given a ten-minute debut towards the end of the match and has thanked the fans for their support.

He said (Tottenham Website): “It feels very good to have my first game with the Club and I want to say thank you to the fans and the team for welcoming me and congratulations on the game – we got a good point away from home against a very good team.

“The people who come away to support the team like they did today, it was incredible to feel this and I have to say thanks to all the people who came here to get behind us. It was important for me and for the team collectively.

“It was very positive for me to play my first game against a very good team like Manchester City in a tough game – we played well and it was a good experience for me.”
