Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura: We must take Europa Conference League seriously

Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura says the club should throw everything at trying to win the Europa Conference League.

Lucas insists they should take the competition seriously.

"Everyone knows football is not all about money," he explained.

"Of course, it helps. But it will bring a lot of expectation because it means they can buy big players, big stars, and make some improvements in the club, the stadium, the training ground.

"So fans become excited because they want titles, they want to see the team winning trophies, winning the Champions League and it's good to be involved with.

"Because you as a player have these expectations to win, to perform.

"It was a pleasure for me and that's very normal for a footballer.

"It's a good pressure. Football is about this, because when you are in a big club with big players around you, you have a big expectation from the fans and big pressure but it's good.

"You feel that when you play and it's why football is amazing."
