‘Spurs can become title challengers in bigger stadium’ – Moura


Lucas Moura has talked up Tottenham’s chances at winning silverware this season suggesting the club can become title challengers in their new home.

The former Paris Saint-Germain winger was awarded the Premier League Player of August after an impressive start to the campaign.

Moura has benefited from Heung Min Son’s absence from Mauricio Pochettino’s squad due to his participation in the Asian Games with South Korea.

The Brazilian has enjoyed an impressive run of performances that has seen him contribute three goals in four games – two of them coming in Spurs’ 3-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

While the club have been unable to move to their newly built White Hart Lane stadium, Moura believes a switch to their new home will bolster the side’s chances at competing for silverware.

Spurs will continue to host games at Wembley although their EFL clash against Watford has been moved to Stadium MK due to the unavailability of Wembley on September 25th.

Lucas Moura has told Mirror he hopes that when Spurs finally switch to their new stadium it would spur them to even bigger things.

The Premier League’s Player of the Month believes the new White Hart Lane will be very important to the club’s growth and make them evolve into title challengers across all competitions.

“Tottenham are one of the great clubs of England and, at a stadium with a bigger capacity, they can get even bigger,” the Brazilian told the. “We are in the most important moment to grow as a club.

“There is a big future here in the Premier League and Champions League. We can go a long way in Europe, even now. It’s an exciting time.”

Spurs lost narrowly to Watford in their fourth game of the EPL season and Lucas is of the opinion that despite the setback, the side can still go far in the Premier League this season.

“We know we are a good team,” Lucas said. “Winning the first three games of the season proves that we are doing things well and that we can go far in the Premier League this season.
