New Tottenham winger has a predictable problem in England

New Spurs winger Lucas Moura says he has just one problem with his new club, but he is adamant he will adapt.

In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport via Calciomercato the £25million recruit from PSG has spoken about life in the capital and he says the weather  is “a problem”.

Moura played for Tottenham in the snow at Wembley in an FA Cup replay against Rochdale last week – a first for the 25-year-old Brazilian.

“I’m happy to have joined Tottenham,” said Moura, who opened his goal account for Spurs in the original fixture with Dale. “I was happy in Paris but something didn’t go the right way in the last few months.

“There are some top-class players here: Kane, Eriksen, Alli and Son. I’m happy here the only problem is the weather.

“I’d never played under the snow in my entire career but I will adapt somehow. VAR? It must be improved to avoid confusion on the pitch. Fans at the stadium should know what’s happening. In the first half against Newport we were all a bit confused, both us and our opponents.”

Ahead of Spurs’ return Champions League clash against Juventus on Wednesday, Moura revealed Juventus’ quick start in the first leg had rocked Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

“The return leg will be a tough one. The It would be a mistake to remain quiet and try to control the game at Wembley. The 2-2 of the opening game is a good result for us but Juve are one of the best clubs in Europe. They are the finalists of two of the last three Champions Leagues. They have International experience,” added Moura.

“They are a very balanced team, they can attack and defend very well. Their start in Turin was stonishing but we had a great comeback. That night issued us a warning: Juve can score two goals in the space of a few minutes.

“I know Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro as well as Matuidi who was one of my team-mates at Psg. Juventus’ defence is so solid and Higuain is a ‘lord of goal’.”
