Lucas Moura has outlined his ambition to become a champion with Tottenham Hotspur before one day returning to his hometown club, Sao Paulo.
Moura has been one of the players who has benefited most from Jose Mourinho’s arrival in North London, with the Brazilian being a near-permanent fixture in the starting XI.
The 27-year-old found himself in and out of the team under Mauricio Pochettino and was left on the bench rather frequently despite putting in decent displays when called upon.
However, the former PSG man seems to now have his mojo back and it is evident that he is enjoying his football in North London.
When asked about the possibility of one day returning to Sao Paulo, Moura outlined his ambition writing his name into Tottenham history books before returning to Brazil.
Speaking to Globo Esporte (as relayed by Sport Witness) the Spurs star said: “You know I have that goal in my career (returning to Sao Paulo). But I have things to achieve here, the club is growing a lot.
“With the arrival of Mourinho and after last season, we reached another level. I aim to be champion here. I really want to be a champion and mark my name in the history of the club.
“When I get determined to return to Sao Paulo, if the club want me, I’ll definitely go there.”

Mourinho has certainly got the squad believing that they are good enough to challenge for the title next season. However, as things stand, we are a fair way behind Manchester City and Liverpool, and we will certainly need some smart additions this summer in order to close that gap.
