Watch: Former Spurs flop Gedson Fernandes scores on Galatasaray debut
After his disappointing loan period at Tottenham ended last month, Gedson Fernandes wasted no time making his mark at his new club as he scored after coming off the bench to make his Galatasaray.
Fernandes joined Tottenham on an 18-month loan deal in January 2020 as part of ‘Jorge Mendes‘written everywhere.
The midfielder was on the sidelines of the Benfica squad when he moved to north London, where he has only played 14 times in all competitions, including 61 minutes of Premier League football.
With their option to permanently sign the 21-year-old for € 50million seemingly unlikely to be activated anytime soon, Spurs allowed Fernandes to return to Benfica in January, paving the way for another loan transfer to Galatasaray until the end of the season.
And Fernandes made a much brighter start to life in Turkey, scoring late after coming off the bench to make his debut, although he couldn’t stop his new club from falling apart 3-2 against Alanyaspor in the Turkish Cup quarterfinals.
