Paulinho: Unhappy during two year spell in England

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho has claimed that his last few months in England was the “worst moment” of his career. 

The Brazilian midfielder joined Spurs in 2013 as part of a £100million summer spending spree, but failed to settle in North London.

Paulinho, who signed in a £17million deal, scored only 10 goals in 67 appearances in his two years in England.

After joining Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande earlier this year, the 27-year-old has revealed how he struggled to settle down during his disappointing two-year spell in England.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Sport, he said: “I was unhappy in England; the last months was the worst moment of my career.

“I was unhappy and my family was not right. The chance to work with Scolari appeared, in a team where there were other Brazilians, and I chose the option of playing in China.”
