Lucas Moura: ‘I was right to ditch Neymar for Tottenham’

Lucas Moura who joined Tottenham form PSG this January has no regrets leaving behind Neymar as he is determined to “make history” with Tottenham.

The winger moved to Spurs for £25 million ($32.8m) in January and made just six Premier League appearances as Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished third in the Premier League.

Speaking with Daily mail he said: “Neymar is like my brother.

“I love him and we have a very good close relationship. It was a little bit sad to leave him and Paris because I like the life there. But I had been there for five years and it was time to have a new challenge.

“I wanted to play in another championship and coming here was a big opportunity for me to play in the best league in the world.

“Tottenham are a big club. They are probably bigger in structure than PSG. I am impressed about this and I was happy to come here.

“Now I am ready to give my best because I will do the whole pre-season with the team. That is important because here is very different – the Premier League is very hard – so I will be more ready to show my talent.”

“The relationship with him is very good. I believe we can have a big season, win a trophy,” he added.

“That’s why I am here, to win a trophy because I believe in the team, the project. We have the capacity to make history here.”
