Tottenham star says he was struggling under Emery

Tottenham star Lucas Moura says he had hard time under Unai Emery while playing for PSG.

Brazil international and Arsenal coach worked together for 1.5 years in PSG before Tottenham took Moura in January of 2018.

“I believe in my talent,” he told the Mirror. “In my quality. I try to show it – him – at Spurs.

“I forget the last five or six months I had at PSG. I like to think about the four years when I was very happy there and won a lot of trophies. The last year was to learn and to grow up. Now I think I’m more experienced and stronger.”

“I need to respect the decision of the coach. I know that it’s difficult for him because he needs to choose 11 players to play. I don’t like to look behind. I like to look forward to what I can do, what I can win.

“I have nothing against Unai, I respect him, he is a very good coach.”

Moura explains he feels good to play under Pochettino.

“I am in a big club and I play with big players,” he said. “I am so happy here. I really believe in this club. I really believe that we can win the Premier League, we can win trophies this season. I am here to help and to make history. We need to work and to believe always.” he added.
