Pochettino Sure Lucas Moura Can Step Into Kane Void
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino says that Lucas Moura’s hat trick against Huddersfield on Saturday shows that Spurs can cope without the injured Harry Kane.
Kane is on the sidelines with another ankle problem, but Lucas Moura stepped up in his absence, plundering three goals past relegated Huddersfield this weekend.
“Football moves so quick and after the game when Harry got injured everyone believed Sonny was going to step up and is going to be the man, but we have seen today Lucas got a hat-trick and it was an unbelievable afternoon for him.
“Players need to have the possibility to play to show the quality and that is why sometimes all the managers are disappointed when the people say about rotation, about selection of the starting XI.
“"I am so happy, the performance was very professional, I am happy for Lucas for his hat- trick. It is going to help and bring him confidence. We have ahead a very tough period, two games against Manchester City and then Brighton.”
