Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura is under agreement with the north London-based club till 2024, however it appears as though the 29-year-old has his post-European profession all planned.
In a piece for The Players Tribune, the forward spoken about his profession, individual life, and a number of other topics, one being his love for São Paulo FC. Moura gone over wishing to win the Copa Sudamericana in 2012 prior to leaving to Paris Saint-Germain.
“I’d be walking around the training center and look at these photos of former champions. I was willing to do anything to earn a spot on the wall. Seriously, I really did think, If I have to tear up my contract with PSG to win something here, I will,” Moura stated.
“When we played the final of the Copa Sudamericana in December that year, I knew it was my last chance. We were playing the second leg in front of 67,000 people at the Morumbi, and before the game, I thought about all my memories from São Paulo, all the goals I had scored, and all the friends I had made. I thanked God for every moment.”
Moura and São Paulo would win the competition beating Club Atlético Tigre. As an outcome, Moura would leave his boyhood club a flatware prior to leaving for Europe.
The Tottenham forward would then discuss what São Paulo implies to him, and how as a kid, he’d keep up seeing matches and matured in the Brazilian club’s academy.
“You have to understand how much that club means to me. Just talking about it gives me goosebumps,” Moura stated.
“I pretty much grew up at the academy. I made friends there who I consider my brothers. I still stay up late to watch São Paulo play. It’s the club in my heart, the club of my life. I carry it with me everywhere I go.”
This short article has actually triggered some São Paulo to hope that the Tottenham forward will go back to the club when his agreement with the English side ends. Moura will turn 32 throughout the summer season his handle Spurs goes out and unless he wishes to stay in Europe, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him go back to his boyhood club in hopes of including another prize.
