He Needs Time - Mauricio Pochettino Eases Pressure On Lucas Moura

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino suggests that January signing Lucas Moura will not be available for the Premier League fixture at Liverpool.

Lucas, who has been given the No.27 Spurs jersey, was yet to start a Ligue 1 match this season and has been limited to just six appearances in all competitions.

PSG splashed out £38 million to sign Moura from Brazilian club Sao Paolo and he was at the time considered as being one of the best up and coming talents in South America.

"But it is different if you sign Neymar or [Lionel] Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo". The expectation is that he can help us in the next three months but we cannot put too much pressure on him.

Pochettino has continued this as proven by the club's acquisition of Lucas Moura.

The following campaign, Moura scored eight times, with seven in Ligue 1, and picked up six assists as the Parisians sealed a domestic quadruple, this time winning the Coupe de France, and again made the quarter-finals of the Champions League. "But maybe he needs to work a little bit alone to work with the team".

"I am so happy to be here", Moura said via a short video on Tottenham's snapchat account.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery has described Neymar as "special" after a week of criticism of the Brazil international's conduct.

"I'm sad, because he's a good friend, he's a quality player who was rarely used".

What's vital though is that the Brazil global injects speed and trickery to the Spurs attack line, a trait that the team lacks, particularly following Georges-Kevin Nkoudou's move to Burnley. "I think it's very unfair", the PSG superstar was quoted as saying by the Independent. He is an experienced player, young but with a lot of experience, playing at a big club like PSG.

The aforementioned duo pulled the strings all night, although every player in the Spurs starting XI could get a mention.

"Of course it's not a big deal this situation and of course he understands". For me, family and football are the most important things, they are in the same level. Tottenham hope that will become the case in North London.
