Lucas Moura has opened up on his season with Tottenham Hotspur and what he hopes to achieve with the club in the future (Football London).
Although it was a poor campaign for Spurs as a club, Lucas Moura was one of the few players who impressed in spells.
The Brazilian was a well-utilised player by Jose Mourinho across the season, making 50 appearances in all competitions (TransferMarkt). In this time, Moura contributed a decent return of nine goals and eight assists.
The winger arguably came into his own when Mourinho brought him inside to play a number ten role in the side, taking advantage of his close dribbling and penetrating runs.
However, Moura found game time a little hard to come by under Ryan Mason, with the interim head coach more interested in handing Dele Alli some much-needed minutes.
Lucas is still contracted at Spurs until 2024 and claims that he still wants to win trophies in North London, while adding that he was happy with his performances to an extend.
He said: “It’s always difficult to speak personally, but collectively I think the season was very, very tough.
“We have the quality to do much, much better and we lost several opportunities. Personally, I can see it in a good way, I can take positive things.
“I’m happy with my performances but it’s not enough because I wanted to help the team qualify for the Champions League.
“I wanted to win a trophy and it was not possible. But that’s football, we need to learn from our mistakes and do better next season.”
“I can say that I am very happy in this group with my teammates and I always say that my dream, my objective is to win trophies with this team, this club – especially because I think we have the quality for this and the talent for this.”
