Pochettino Gives Lucas Moura No Assurances
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned new signing Lucas Moura that he is going tohave to fight hard to get a place in the Tottenham side.
Lucas signed from Paris Saint Germain on transfer deadline day, but the Argentine coach isat pains to warn the Brazilian that he is by no means guaranteed a first team spot with thelikes of Son, Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko to compete with.
“For him he’s not going to come here, arrive and say, ‘Oh because he is Lucas Moura andcame from Paris St Germain, he’s going to play because he is Lucas Moura’,” Pochettinosaid.
“He needs to show that he is better than our players. That is the fair competition. If you are inParis St Germain and Neymar arrives, if he is better than you then he plays. It’s fair, he’sbetter.
“If not, then they need to compete. Lucas Moura must compete with Lamela, with Sonny,with Eriksen,” he concluded.
