Spurs TV special - best of Gio
Thu 09 April 2020, 12:30|Tottenham Hotspur
We're celebrating Giovani Lo Celso's 24th birthday today - 9 April - by bringing you a special Spurs TV compilation of his best work in a Spurs shirt so far.
Initially joining on loan from Real Betis, we exercised the option to convert that loan to a permanent transfer at the end of January, Gio signing a contract until 2025.
There is no hiding that it was tough for the Argentina international to make his mark at the start of his Spurs career. He arrived late in pre-season due to his involvement in the Copa America, which ended on 6 July. He was then hit by a hip injury in his next international call-up against Chile in September that ruled him out for six weeks.
It’s safe to say he’s shone since then. He scored on his full debut in the Champions League at Red Star and had started 10 of our last 13 matches before coronavirus brought a halt to football - his form prompting Jose Mourinho to describe him as ‘phenomenal’.
Check out the video below - happy birthday, Gio!
