Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has stated that he is happy in North London, hailing some of his ‘top-class’ team-mates – but bemoaning the British weather.
The Brazil international moved to the Premier League in the January transfer window, penning a long-term deal with Spurs in a £23 million deal.
Tottenham fans have been impressed with Moura’s brief cameos so far, despite the former Paris Saint-Germain star not starting a Premier League game for his new club.
The versatile forward will be in contention to play for Spurs against Juventus on Wednesday night and has given an interview to the Italian press ahead of the Champions League glamour tie.
Moura has stated that he is content at Tottenham and looking forward to playing a role in the club’s success.
“I’m happy to have joined Tottenham,” the Spurs man told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I was happy in Paris but something didn’t go the right way in the last few months. There are some top class players here: Kane, Eriksen, Alli and Son. I’m happy here the only problem is the weather.
“I’d never played under the snow in my entire career but I will adapt somehow. VAR? It must be improved to avoid confusion on the pitch.
“Fans at the stadium should know what’s happening. In the first half against Newport we were all a bit confused, both us and our opponents.”
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino’s options in the final third have been bolstered since Moura’s arrival in North London and Erik Lamela’s return form long-term injury.
It is unlikely that the Brazilian will start the game against Juventus, with the likes of in-form Son, Eriksen and Alli to be fielded in the attacking midfield roles.
However, for Tottenham to boast a player of Moura’s quality as an option from the bench shows the strength in depth at the club – the South American could yet have an important role to play in Spurs’ Champions League journey.
