The 19 year old defender has expressed delight after making his debut in Europe’s elite competition against the Celts at the Ethiad stadium on Tuesday night
Tosin Adarabioyo has admitted that Manchester City had a bad start in Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Celtic at the Ethiad stadium, but said that he was glad they were able to claim a point from the game.
Patrick Roberts opened scoring for the visitors in the fourth minute of the encounter, but Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho rifled a shot high into the roof of the Craig Gordon’s after connecting with a superb pass from Nolito to restore the home team back into the game.
The 19-year old defender also disclosed that he was grateful for the opportunity by the coaching crew, adding that the team performed well, despite their failure to claim all three points in the game.
“A lot of things happened in the first 20 minutes, I don’t think we started the game very well but we gassed out into the game which obviously didn’t go our way but happy to have finished the game 1-1,” he said after the game
“Well, since the age of 13/14, the academy has been preparing me for this day and days to come, to play in that way and I’m thankful to the academy for doing that.
“We are all very grateful for the opportunities we are getting and we are performing well, I think I made a good performance well tonight.”
“Good team performance tonight, thankful to God for another opportunity! Uncle @67Kelechi with another goal #ucl #mcfc
