Gilberto looking forward to his Spurs debut

Tottenham Hotspur play Birmingham City in the English Premier League on Saturday and there is one player in the Spurs camp who is looking forward to the match more than anyone else.

And that player is Gilberto da Silva Melo who was signed from the German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin in the January transfer period. The Brazilian international left-back has been out since his move to White Hart Lane with a calf strain but is set to make his debut for the north London club this weekend.

Gilberto says:

I had a muscle problem which hardly anyone knew about.

This Carling Cup victory shows why I left Hertha.

I wanted to play for a top team who can win the title.

Tile? What title?? Come on, you Spurs, please stop talking about the Premiership silverware for now!
