Lucas Moura unlikely to make Tottenham Hotspur debut against Liverpool

Lucas Moura unlikely to make Tottenham Hotspur debut against Liverpool”

Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of Lucas Moura with the Brazilian winger arriving from Paris Saint-Germain on a long-term contract.

However, Pochettino tried to downplay those expectations after pointing out that Moura was just a fringe player at PSG and only made six substitute appearances under Unai Emery during the opening half of the season. It's a big challenge for me, a new chapter of my life.

"He scored a lot of goals last season, he's fast, he can fit with the team perfectly". Although he hasn't reached that level yet, he is still young and this move could be what he needs to push on for greater things. Since taking charge at White Hart Lane in 2014, he has gradually built Spurs into a side that now expects rather than hopes for Champions League football. Tottenham's attacking performance against Manchester United showed that they don't need the Brazilian to come straight into the team and he will be given time to bed in.

"He is an experienced player, with a lot of experience at a big club like Paris Saint-Germain".

Mauricio Pochettino has gone about building an excellent first team at Spurs since taking the job, no one could argue with that, but there's certainly been times when pace has been a problem for the side now playing at Wembley.

His progress stalled in France, particularly after the big-money buys of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer, and Moura may not find it easy at his new club either.

The 25-year-old will also be available for Tottenham in the Champions League, and this is only going to enhance their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals of Europe's premier club competition. Pochettino added. "But we are a team that remember, some people complained or criticised that Tottenham don't have Plan B".

"I think this season we are more mature". "I am so excited because everything is ideal and I'm sure we will do big things together".
