Tottenham’s victory over Man United finished off a wholly successful day after the Lilywhites announced the signing of Brazilian international winger Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain.

Most people have seen the stunning dribbles and silky skills possessed by the Samba star circulating on social media.

But it seems Spurs striker Harry Kane is playing catch up with the highlights and will be checking up Youtube to find out a bit more about his new team-mate.

“It’s great,” said Kane. “We met him in the changing room after the match. Playing for a team like PSG, we know what he can do. It’s great to have him here and we’re looking forward to getting to know him and seeing what he can do in training and games. It’s a great addition to the squad.

“It’s more competition for places, keeping everyone on their toes. We know what he can bring. He’s done amazing stuff for PSG so we’re excited to get to know him and see what can happen.”

Asked whether he has watched any videos of Moura in action, Kane said: “Not really, no. I’ll have to get on YouTube and see what he’s like.”

On last night’s evidence, Moura faces a real challenge to break into Pochettino’s strongest XI, given the performances of Son, Eriksen and Dele Alli – and Kane admits it will take the latest recruit some time to get onto the same wavelength as Spurs’ other attacking players and build the necessary understandings.

“The manager’s great, we do a lot of tactical work,” said the striker. “When you play together for a period of time, you just get used to how one another plays.

“Obviously it’s a bit tougher for the new lads coming in but there’s no rush. Hopefully Lucas can come and fit right in and, when he gets an opportunity, take it.”

Spurs lie in fifth place in the table, batting to climb up into the Champions League spots, but they are only two points and two places worse off than at the same stage last season, after 25 league matches – and last term they went on to finish second.

Kane reflected: “Because City have done so well, people automatically think everyone else has done badly.


“We did great last year and we’re probably at a similar point to where we were. We’re through in the Champions League – we have a big tie coming up [against Juventus in the last 16]. We’re changing grounds, so it’s been a good season.

“We’d have liked to be up there with City, like every other team, but it’s not the case so we’ve got to fight for what’s left of the season. We’re still in the FA Cup too. We’ll see what happens.”
