Neymar: It's Unfair That This Star Is Being Told To Leave PSG

Neymar: It's Unfair That This Star Is Being Told To Leave PSG

Brazil global Lucas Moura is reportedly on the verge of signing for Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur and it is all down to his lack of playing time in France.

Lucas completed an anticipated £25million switch to Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day. Yes, it's very painful but I think Juan, when we signed him, we believed him to be a future, potential top player and of course he's going to play now. Many quality players struggle in six months or one year to adapt to the team, the club, the Premier League.

With 26 goals in 25 games, he is well on target to recording his best ever season, with the 2014-15 campaign at Barca his previous high mark, when he netted on 39 occasions. Lucas is best on the right wing, but he can play anywhere across the forward line. I'm very happy to play with him again. But we can not put too much pressure on him.

After Saturday's trip north, PSG visit second-tier Sochaux in the French Cup and then host Toulouse in Ligue 1 before all eyes turn to the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash with holders Real Madrid in Spain on February 14. "I wasn't expecting this at the beginning, these statistics with Paris Saint-Germain". Pochettino added. "But we are a team that remember, some people complained or criticised that Tottenham don't have Plan B. I'm defending myself with the ball", Neymar said.

It means Pochettino is likely to pick a similar side that won so impressively against Manchester United in midweek but there may be a difference in approach at Anfield, where Spurs have not tasted victory since May 2011.

"We met him in the changing room last night. And I will win with my team".

"I'm comfortable with our evolution".

Or maybe we're all being too harsh and should lighten up a bit?

"It will be massive for us to win", Pochettino said.

Lucas' former PSG team-mate Serge Aurier is back in training following a calf injury, while England midfielder Harry Winks has recovered from an ankle problem.
