After a barren seven months at Paris Saint-Germain, Brazilian international Lucas Moura has stated he delight at joining Premier League giants, Tottenham Hotspur.
In an interview with ESPN Brasil (quotes via HITC), the 25-year-old revealed that after a difficult first half of the season - during which he was ostracised from the PSG first team - he is glad to have the opportunity to play football again:
"I spent a very difficult seven months at PSG, I was not playing, I was training and going home, so it’s difficult for a player.
"So when that opportunity to play in a big team like Tottenham came, and when I got here I saw the facilities and the players, it got me very excited. So that’s how I said, very happy about it.”
