Tottenham ace Lucas Moura almost speechless named Premier League Player of the Month

Tottenham ace Lucas Moura was almost rendered speechless upon being named the Premier League's Player of the Month for August.

Lucas is now just the fourth Brazilian to win the award since its inception in 1994 and the first since Chelsea's David Luiz won it over seven years ago.

“It's difficult to explain how I'm feeling at the moment," Lucas admitted upon receiving the award. “I'm so happy because I know it's not easy to win this trophy and it was a great month for me and also for the team.

“I don't have much to say but thanks to God and to share this with my team-mates and with my family, and to keep working because this is only the beginning. We have a lot more in front of us so I need to keep working and doing my best."

“What a month! I'm so happy, so happy!" Lucas smiled. “I worked a lot and very hard for this moment and I think the team had a great month with great games.

“My first goal at Wembley in the Premier League was very nice, with my left foot. It's not normal! It was a big moment and of course, against Manchester United, it was even more special because it's not easy to play at Old Trafford against United and I scored two goals and we won 3-0.

“The feeling is impossible to explain because I waited a long time for this moment. I need to enjoy it but also to keep working because I believe I have much more to give and I'm sure we will have a successful season because we can, and I believe in my team-mates, I believe in this club. I want to deliver much more."
