Tottenham star Lucas Moura explains difference between Nuno and Mourinho

Lucas Moura is enjoying a more "relaxed" environment under new Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs have won their first three Premier League games of the season, leaving them top of the table.

Moura developed a strong connection with former manager Jose Mourinho, but admits things are different under Nuno.

He told ESPN Brazil: "It's been very good. A very nice guy. A more relaxed guy, you know? More on his own, speaks low.

"He [Nuno] did a spectacular job at Wolves, he has everything to do a great job here too. We are slowly eating around the edges, we are there in the lead, three games, three wins.

"Let's see what happens at the end of the season. But it's been very positive. It makes it much easier that he's Portuguese, the language makes it much easier. His training is very good. I'm very optimistic, very hopeful for this season."
