Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho is happy with his return of seven goals in his first season at Spurs
Paulinho has declared that he is happy with his return of seven goals in his first season at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Brazil international broke the deadlock as Spurs were comfortable 3-1 winners against London rivals Fulham at White Hart Lane last weekend.
I’m delighted to score seven goals
Paulinho has found the back of the net six times in the Premier League, as well as scoring against Dinamo Tblisi in the Europa League.
And the 25-year-old, who moved to Spurs from Corinthians last summer, is pleased with his adaption to the Premier League this season.
“It’s my first season in the Premier League, I’ve played a lot of games and yes, I’m happy with seven goals,” Paulinho told Tottenham’s website.
“Everyone knows the first season (in the Premier League) is difficult. It’s a change of football after playing in Brazil, a change of lifestyle and I’m delighted to score seven goals.
“The most important thing was that we took three points against Fulham. Now we prepare for a tough game against Stoke.”
Paulinho scored 25 goals in 114 appearances for Corinthians.
