Spurs’ Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson scored his first Premier League goal in a Spurs shirt in Monday’s London Derby with West Ham. The close range strike could prove to be vital for the club at the end of the campaign and after the match, the player spoke of his immense relief.
“Getting that first goal, I feel 10 stone lighter,” Gylfi said. “This is why I came to a club like Tottenham, to play games like this and win games in the last minute.”
It’s been a mixed start to the player’s Tottenham career and he admitted himself that it’s been tough,
“I’m enjoying it, even though it has been quite tough – especially with me not scoring in the league. Hopefully this will give me a bit of confidence and a bit of luck and I can keep going,” Sigurdsson added.
After scoring seven league goals for Swansea at the end of last season, it’s been a slow start for Gylfi at White Hart Lane but could Monday’s goal be a turning point or is he always destined to be a fringe player while he wears a Tottenham shirt?
