Tottenham Hotspur announced on its official website on the 19th (Korean time) that “Lucas Moura will leave the team after the season.” It becomes a free agent (FA) status that does not incur transfer fees.
He once garnered 안전놀이터much anticipation as a ‘Brazilian football genius’. He made his professional debut in 2010 with São Paulo FC in his home league. At the time, he was called a football genius on par with Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain). His flashy and fast dribbling was his strong point. As expected from Brazil, he has solid basic skills.
▲ Moura during his days at Paris Saint-Germain
▲ Moura, who created a miracle in the 2018-19 season UCL
He joined Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain (France) in 2018. The highlight was the 2018-19 season. He performed a miracle in the semifinals of the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL). At the time, Tottenham lost 0-1 to Ajax (Netherlands) in the first leg held at home. I went into the second round with a sense of pressure. ‘Main gun’ Harry Kane was also sidelined due to injury. It was 0-2 in the 35th minute of the first half. Advancement to the finals faded.
At that moment, Moura appeared. He scored a comeback goal in the 10th minute of the second half, and made his second goal 4 minutes later. He then completed a hat trick in extra time. It was truly a miracle. It became 3-2 and the total of the first and second games was 3-3. Tottenham, ahead on away goals, advanced to the final.
It created a moment that would go down in team history, but it was sluggish after that. He played in 47 games in the 2019-20 season, but scored only 7 goals and 5 assists. Every season, the opportunity to play has been getting smaller and smaller. This season, he played a total of 17 games and failed to record a single attack point. Rather, he made frequent mistakes. In the 29th round against Everton, he was sent off stupidly. In the match against Liverpool in the 34th round, he made a big mistake by conceding the winning goal to his opponent.
There was also the humiliation of going down to the Tottenham Under-21 (U-21) team. He appeared in 4 matches and scored 3 goals. The ‘miracle man’ has become a thing of the past.
