Lucas Moura ‘Comfortable’ With Extra Responsibility At Spurs
Spurs forward Lucas Moura says he is ‘comfortable’ with the extra responsibility of playing as a forward with Son and Harry Kane injured.
Son has a fractured arm and Kane a torn hamstring, leaving both out for a number of weeks. Moura has played as a centre-forward in their absence.
The Brazilian told the Spurs website that it is a role he is happy to play; despite being considered as more of a wide player.
““I feel very good,” he said. “I’m always doing my best to help the team. I know when Harry is out, Sonny is out and when you play like a number nine, there is that extra responsibility, but I feel good, I feel comfortable.
“The best thing is to win games and when I give my best, I’m happy. It’s tough physically, especially here in the Premier League. There are only big games, great teams, high intensity, a lot of tackles but that’s good for me. I prepare for this every day and try to be ready.
“We cannot cry, we cannot be sad because Harry’s out, Sonny’s out, Moussa’s out. We need to fight. Every team have these problems, injuries, suspension. I know we’re strong, mentally strong. If we give everything on the pitch and have the mentality of winning, then I know we can do it.”
