Those were crazy moments: Gedson Fernandes remembers his initial minutes in the Premier League

LONDON: Remembering his first moments of Premier league football, Tottenham 's Gedson Fernandes they said they were crazy moments.

It 's completely different from what we saw on the TV (in Portugal). When I made my first minutes, I couldn't believe it because everything felt so slow but at the same time, everything was so fast on the pitch. It 's something different to learn, the club' s official website quoted Fernandes as saying.

Mentally, I think when you play the first few minutes of a game, you feel so tired. After that you feel good, you feel comfortable, so you can play your game, but yes, in the first few minutes, these are crazy moments, he added.

Fernandes joined Tottenham from Benfica on an 18-month loan agreement in January.

Explaining the highly competitive environment in the Premier league , Fernandes said 'players give their lives for the game'.

You are alert, you want to see what 's happening but, at the same time, you have no time to wait and watch around to see where your man is. You need to be focussed. Your head has to stay in the moment , he said.

You come from a different country and a different league, you think basically it will be the same but, in the moment, no, nothing was the same. The opposition want it more and so you have to want it even more than that. It's completely crazy. You have to fight more. The players give their lives for the game, for the moment and they are enjoying it, Fernandes added.
