Federico Fazio has praised the Tottenham Hotspur supporters who made the trip to Manchester City and reflected on his Premier League debut, the club’s official
Fazio made his first league appearance since joining from Sevilla in the 4-1 defeat, with all of City’s goals coming through his compatriot, Sergio Aguero. But Fazio’s day ended early when he was shown a straight red card after giving away a penalty for a foul on Aguero.
Despite his disappointment over the result and the dismissal, Fazio looked back without fondness on his first domestic appearance, but said supporters were the best part. “The fans were amazing for us,” he said. “For all those people in the away area and all the Tottenham fans I wanted to win.
“We showed more than just fight and passion in the game. We competed well but we can still be more aggressive and do more to win games. It was my Premier League debut and I should be happy but I’m not because I wanted to win, I always want to win. We’ve got to work hard as a team now to compete in the upcoming games.
“The way we played was good but now we have to get back on the training pitch and prepare ourselves for the Europa League game on Thursday.”
Fazio spent seven years at Sevilla, making more than 170 appearances for Los Rojiblancos and winning the Europa League in 2014. He has also represented Argentina on a handful of occasions.
