Tottenham forward Lucas Moura has claimed that the club can still turn their poor form around and qualify for next season’s Champions League after they were demolished 3-0 by RB Leipzig on Tuesday.
Moura looked devastated after the final whistle, as last season’s Champions League finalists were thumped 4-0 on aggregate by Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
The striker took to Instagram after the game to admit that he was hurting after the result and asked the fans to keep the faith.
However, the Brazilian believes that Spurs are capable of making up the ground on the teams above them to qualify for the Champions League for a fifth straight season.
He admitted, however, that the Lilywheites needed to show improvement in a lot of departments.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Moura said after the game: “It’s a very difficult moment for us,” the Brazilian said. “But the only way that we have is to keep fighting, keep believing.
“Now we have only the Premier League and we need to be in a better position.
“Our objective is the top four, the Champions League next season. I believe that it’s possible. We will try.
“Every season it is our objective to get into the Champions League. We know we need to be better. The last few results were not good and we have to improve our game.
“We are fighting and working hard every day and it is possible. We have two important games at home now and we need to win. That is it.”
The pacey attacker claimed that it was only a matter of time before the team got back to winning ways.
He added: “We know that we have good players, we have a good squad and we can do better. It is just football. Sometimes you can try everything you play well, you don’t win.
“It is just something that is missing. We will find the winning way again.”
Spurs Web Opinion
To have any shot of finishing in the top 4/top 5, we need to get three points against Manchester United at home on Sunday. The likes of Man Utd, Chelsea and Wolves are picking up form at the right time, which makes our task of finishing in the top four extremely difficult unless we get back to winning ways starting this weekend.
