Tottenham ace Lucas Moura: I'll be stronger for first 6 months

Tottenham ace Lucas Moura is confident he'll be better for his first six months in the Premier League.

Lucas joined Spurs from PSG in January.

“It's been a very good season for the team and, for me, five months of adaptation," Lucas told the Spurs website.

“Everything is new for me and I am so happy because it's a very big club, the structure is fantastic and my team-mates are so good. I'm really happy to be here and looking forward to next season.

“This is the best league in the world with a lot of big clubs and it's so exciting. It's different from Brazil or France and for me it's a dream to play here.

“I think I can improve my game a lot here. The physical side is very different to Brazil and the pace of the game is very different to France. You don't have so much time to think so I need to decide what I will do with the ball in one second and that's good for me.

“I have learned from training with my team-mates and I enjoy playing with them. The training here is so hard, we work a lot, and it's so dynamic. When I have the ball, the defenders come and try to take the ball quickly so I need to improve my game and learn about this kind of football."
