Tottenham ace Lucas Moura: Ajax hat-trick my career best moment

Tottenham ace Lucas Moura has revisited last season's famous Champions League hat-trick against Ajax.

Lucas' treble fired Spurs into the final - though the Brazilian infamously was started on the bench by former manager Mauricio Pochettino for their defeat to Liverpool.

He told Lance!: "(The second-leg in Amsterdam) It was the greatest moment of my career, the most special moment. Of course I have experienced others, like my farewell to São Paulo that I will never forget.

"But it was remarkable because it is a great competition, because it is the Champions League and the match was difficult. We lost 2 goals to 0 away and we had to score three goals in 45 minutes."
