Exciting times for Gio

Giovani Dos Santos cannot wait for our Barclays Premier League campaign to kick off next weekend after our impressive pre-season was rounded off with a 5-0 win over AS Roma at the weekend.

The 19-year-old Mexican was thrilled not only by the team's performance but also the reception he received from fans on his first appearance at The Lane.

Having won our last five friendlies, Gio is hoping we can carry our form into Saturday's season opener with Middlesbrough at The Riverside.

He said: "Sunday was unbelievable. The atmosphere in the stadium was incredible. The fans are very important to us and it was a great feeling to play in front of them.

"It's good for me to have a rapport with my fans and I intend to give it my all for them in every game I play.

"Roma were defensive in the first half and the game was quite tight, but the second half was great for the forwards because it opened up.

"The team is very strong now and we need to keep our form up against Middlesbrough next weekend and make the best possible start to the season."

Gio joined Heurelho Gomes in an exclusive post-match interview for Spurs TV Online.
