​Lucas excited by prosperous Tottenham: We're building for the future

Brazilian winger Lucas is very excited at what he can achieve with his Tottenham teammates in the coming years.

Despite being at PSG for many years, Lucas felt as though something was missing in his career. He was not in the team regularly, and he wanted a new challenge.

Then he got his move to Spurs in January, and he has never been happier. He believes something special is being built at the club.

"I had five fantastic years in Paris, then something broke and the last seven months have been difficult," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"This is not the time to talk about certain things, I just want to say I'm happy with the choice I made.

"Spurs are a club building for the future. There are international players like [Harry] Kane, [Christian] Eriksen, [Dele] Alli and Son [Heung-min].

"There is a young, knowledgeable and ambitious coach, and a club with state-of-the-art facilities.

He added: "Everything is going well, the only problem is the weather!

"I had never played in the snow like I did against Newport, but I will adapt to that too."
