Postiga delight

Posted on 17 July 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Helder Postiga was all smiles as he reflected on his almost immediate impact after his introduction to English football against Stevenage Borough.

The Portuguese striker hit the net just five minutes after coming on at half-time against the Conference outfit, but concedes that he still needs some time to adapt to the game and his new teammates.

Speaking through his part-time interpreter Mauricio Taricco, Helder said: "I am pleased to score in my first game, but I need to adapt a little bit and get to know the players around me.

"I am surprised that so many people came to see the game - I saw the opportunity to score and I am happy that I took it."

A priority for the 20-year-old is to learn the language but, in the meantime, he is glad to call on the services of a few new friends.

"I am very happy to be here and I am enjoying it. I am happy also because there are three or four players like Gus, Christian and Tano who speak the language a little bit.

"It makes it a little easier for me to settle in - it helps me.

"Every day I am trying to speak a little bit more in English and I am going to get a teacher to help me further."
