Coach José Mourinho arrived at Tottenham in the middle of the 2019/2020 season. And from the first day in London, he insisted on showing his admiration for Lucas Moura. And the Brazilian had another good season at Spurs, being the athlete who acted most of the entire cast.
Of the 52 games played by Tottenham, Lucas participated in 47 of them (35 in the Premier League, 5 in the Champions League and 2 in the FA CUP). The top 3 was completed with defender Alderweireld and right-back Aurier, both with 42 games, in addition to Son and Harry Wings, with 41.
When talking about the Brazilian, Mourinho highlighted the player’s sacrifice when playing in several consecutive matches, needing to endure physical wear. “A consistent player, who sacrifices himself for the needs of the team. With all the problems we had, Lucas is probably one of the few players who were here the day I arrived and never stopped, in addition to the extreme tiredness he felt from playing all matches “.
