Lucas Moura sees himself go up against his former boss Unai Emery when Tottenham play Arsenal in the North London derby.
The Brazilian struggled to perform under the current Arsenal boss and was eventually sold to Spurs. Moura has found his feet in London and claimed his talent was always going to come out.
The Metro quoted the Brazilian suggesting that the last six months at PSG weren’t all that great:
“I believe in my talent.
“In my quality. I try to show it — him — at Spurs.
“I forget the last five or six months I had at PSG.
“I like to think about the four years when I was very happy there and won a lot of trophies. The last year was to learn and to grow up. Now I think I’m more experienced and stronger.”
Emery has had a decent start to his time at Arsenal with the Gunners just three points behind us in the Premier League table.
Moura might have had a tough time in the final months of his PSG career but he still respected Emery.
“I need to respect the decision of the coach.
“I know that it’s difficult for him because he needs to choose 11 players to play.
“I don’t like to look behind. I like to look forward to what I can do, what I can win.
“I have nothing against Unai, I respect him, he is a very good coach.”
Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders with the Brazilian and Moura has five goals for us this season, and he could find the back of the net against the Gunners and prove a point to his former manager.
