Gelson delighted after making full Man City debut

Gelson Fernandes was delighted to make his full debut for Manchester City in their 0-0 draw at Portsmouth.

"I enjoyed it," said Fernandes. "I was told that I was starting three hours before the game.

"It has been an intense joy because I was waiting for that for a long time. I lived it like an award for the move I made.

"I have not really been surprised because I saw during the week that the manager was working with me on tactics, so I knew that my time was coming.

"It is just the beginning. I now have to continue working hard and even harder."
