Sporting CP winger Marcus Edwards admits Prem return in career plan

Sporting CP winger Marcus Edwards says a return to England is in the career plan.

The Englishman, 23, left Tottenham in 2019 on a free transfer to Vitoria.

After yesterday’s Champions League win against Spurs, Edwards, who has a £52million release clause, insists he’ll make it back to the Premier League one day.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “It feels great and I think we deserved it. We showed how we can play.

“I wouldn’t say extra special, but it was a special feeling to play against Spurs.

“It was good to see people I know – players and coaching staff.

“I stayed the same. Focus was the same. It’s a proper family environment here and I couldn’t be happier.

“It’s home, so of course I want to come back there [to the Premier League] one day. I just focus on what I’m doing here for now.”
