Tottenham Brazilian Lucas Moura is of the opinion that the great pressure on social networks has a very negative impact on the mental health of footballers. In an interview with the BBC, the midfielder took a long look at the problem, linking it to the online abuse suffered by the England trio of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, after losing penalties in the Euro 2020 final. Moura said:
"It's 2021 and we're still seeing very bad things. We must stop! We need to teach our children to behave well. I know it's hard. Fans communicate with players on social networks. But some fans do bad things. And the tournament organizers have to do something about it. ”
Lucas Moura was also asked about the latest developments at Tottenham. Recall that the club has gone through a difficult period, as Portuguese coach Nuno Espirito Santo is the third manager in 20 months for Spurs. However, Moura does not seem worried:
"He (Nuno) is a very smart coach. Has done a very good job with the Wolves and can do the same here. Everyone has a different style. "Mourinho was very different, Nuno is calmer."
Meanwhile, the situation is complicated at the English club and in terms of market movements. Erik Lamela and Toby Alderweireld, two veteran Tottenham players have left the club. Meanwhile, speculation continues about a possible transfer of Harry Kane to Manchester City.
But there are not only negative developments. Korean Son Heung-min renewed with the team until 2025. While Bryan Gil and Italian goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini seem to have brought freshness and a new spirit to Tottenham. The Spurs still have time to make another hit in the market, especially in the case of formalizing Kane's transfer, which would fill the club's coffers.
