'I believe in this club' - Tottenham's Lucas Moura wants to deliver more success

The Brazilian claims winning EA Sports' Player of the Month will spur him on to achieve more at with the Premier League side

Lucas Moura is confident he has plenty more to give following an impressive start to the season with Tottenham.

The Brazilian enjoyed a stellar August, scoring his first Premier League goal at Wembley before a double and a man-of-the-match showing at Old Trafford was enough to land him the EA Sports Player of the Month award. 

The 26-year-old joined Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain in a reported €28 million (£25m/$32m) deal in January, but endured a slow start to life in the Premier League.

However, in the absence of Heung-Min Son on international duty with South Korea, Lucas has been given his chance by Mauricio Pochettino and has taken it with both hands, starting all four league games so far and scoring three goals. 

The winger claims he will not be resting on his laurels, however, and is motivated to keep performing at a high level.

“The feeling is impossible to explain because I waited a long time for this moment. I need to enjoy it but also to keep working because I believe I have much more to give and I’m sure we will have a successful season because we can, and I believe in my team-mates, I believe in this club. I want to deliver much more,” he told Tottenham's official website.

“I worked a lot and very hard for this moment and I think the team had a great month with great games. I’m so happy because I know it’s not easy to win this trophy and it was a great month for me and also for the team. 

“For me, the Premier League is the toughest league in the world and to win a trophy like this, to be player of the month, it’s not easy. To be here now and to win this trophy gives me more motivation to keep working and to want more.

“I don’t have much to say but thanks to God and to share this with my team-mates and with my family, and to keep working because this is only the beginning. We have a lot more in front of us, so I need to keep working and doing my best.”
