Tottenham’s Lucas Moura opens up on his new role under Jose Mourinho

Tottenham’s Lucas Moura opens up on his new role under Jose Mourinho

Tottenham hitting form

Tottenham faced off with Crystal Palace in Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off.

Spurs headed into the clash looking to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League.

And despite Palace’s best efforts, the Lilywhites eventually came away with a resounding 4-1 victory, thanks to starring displays from Harry Kane and Gareth Bale.

Spurs have now won three on the bounce in the English top-flight, guiding them up to 6th in the table, within just a few points of the Champions League places.

Lucas Moura on being a no.10

With 11 game-weeks left to play out, the north Londoners are obviously hitting form at the perfect time, as they aim to secure a Champions League berth.

And whilst, as mentioned above, it was Kane and Bale who took the headlines on Sunday, a number of other players have also been key to Spurs’ recent resurgence.

One such individual is Lucas Moura, who, since Bale began to be afforded a more consistent run of starts, has been shifted into a more central position.

And now, the Brazilian has opened up on his new role in Jose Mourinho’s side:

“I’m happy to be involved and I feel very comfortable in that position. When I was younger, I always played as a number 10 and I like that position because I feel free

“I can run from left to right, I can play in the middle, I can touch more balls, I can create situations for the strikers.

“So I like that position and I’m happy with the confidence that Jose has given me. I just have to give my best and keep going in the same way.”
