Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has admitted that he is missing playing and being involved in football.

The North London club have not kicked a ball in competitive football since the disappointing 3-0 defeat at RB Leipzig in the Champions League knockout stages on March 10th.

The coronavirus pandemic has seen Tottenham’s footballing calendar halted and there is currently no firm date in mind when we can expect to see Jose Mourinho’s side back in action.

Spurs took the decision to hold video training sessions from the start of the month with players taking part from home rather than at the Hotspur Way facility as part of government guidelines to help try and limit the spread of COVID-19 (Mirror).

Moura concedes that he misses everything from taking part in matches to being around his team mates and enjoying the comradery at the training ground.

He told the official Spurs site: “I miss everything,”

“I miss playing football and I miss my team-mates. I miss the training ground and I miss our routine of going to the training centre, to play and have a good time with each other. I miss everything.”

When asked about the video training sessions, the Brazilian international added: “I think they (the remote sessions) work well for everyone,”

“First of all, you see the commitment of everyone. At 11 o’clock in the morning, training very hard to keep for the season because… we don’t know when it will come back, but we need to be ready for it.
