‘I felt not being myself’ – Dejan Kulusevski discusses putting the assist on Harry Kane’s game-winning goal


After conceding a goal late in the second half during stoppage time, Tottenham Hotspur was about to face an unfortunate result, informs the BoyHotspur. Riyad Mahrez converted a penalty kick to make the score 2-2, and it seemed as though Spurs would be dropping points.

However, minutes later, Harry Kane would score the game-winning goal, giving the north London club the 3-2 win and all three points. Dejan Kulusevski provided the assist on the goal and spoke to Football.London, where he offered his initial reaction to the strike.

The 21-year-old stated that he needed this type of performance, putting together the key pass to give Spurs a much-needed win against the Premier League-leading club.

“That’s a feeling I can’t describe,” the forward said. “It’s is so amazing because it’s been a couple of bad months that I felt not being myself and that feeling is amazing and I’m so grateful for the opportunity this club gave me and the coach that he let me play and the players that helped me a lot.”

Kulusevski added that he enjoys being in the underdog role that Tottenham found themselves in this match.

“I love being underdogs,” Kulusevski admitted. “You [come] here, you have to defend because you play against Manchester City, but we [have to] trust the coach, and when the coach says something to do, we have to do it, and we have to help each other because if we as players don’t help each other, we cannot do this type of result.”

Spurs will now hope to use this result to catapult itself into a strong finish for the remaining matches of the season and get a spot in the top four.
