Paulinho dreaming of Premier League and World Cup double
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho is hoping to win the Premier League, before lifting the World Cup with Brazil this summer.
"This is not an impossible dream. I am optimistic about winning the league with Tottenham and the World Cup with Brazil," he told The Sun.
"It would be incredible to be on those buses parading both trophies. Tottenham can do it. It's a very open race.
"The rivalry for places in the team couldn't be greater and the players are convinced this could be a big year for the club.
"You know about the intensity of Brazilian football. For the fans over there, the World Cup is the ultimate.
"Like most Brazilian players, I began by playing on the bench and I still think of those days. I've always dreamt about playing for my country in the World Cup.”
The 25 year-old has begun impressively at Spurs. He’s started ten matches, scoring once.
