Lucas Torreira admits that still pinches himself at times to make sure that what’s happened to him this season isn’t just a dream.
Torriera has already established himself as a fans favourite and on Friday night he will represent his country at the Emirates when Uruguay plays a friendly against Brazil.
Uruguayan midfielder has started in all 12 games for his team. Has one assist so far and 0 goals in 7 wins.
The opportunity to play for his national side in his own club stadium is just another special moment. And Torreira ahead of his national team game spoke about the club and his teammates.
“When I arrived at the club they told me that my closet in the locker room was going to be in between Lacazette’s and Ozil’s,” he said.
“I would have never imagined or dreamed of something like that. I am privileged to live all this at the age of 22. It was very hard for me to get where I am now. That’s why it’s so enjoyable.”
Torreira added: “Mesut and Laca are wonderful players and people. They bring in that quality touch that the team needs. They dictate the tempo in every play of the game.
“Laca is in great scoring form, which is really important for us and we know that Mesut is a top player. If you pass him the ball he will hardly ever give it away. He plays with simplicity and he’s got a lot of quality, which makes us very calm.”
