Tottenham and Roma faced each other in a friendly on Saturday. Roma beat Spurs 1-0. Roma head coach Jose Mourinho praised Tottenham’s Brazilian winger Lucas Moura on Instagram.
“Great training session with a top team, and one of the great things in football is the amazing people you cross life paths with @lucasmoura7”
Conte is reportedly counting heavily on the 29-year-old, but he is not guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.
The Spurs manager may place the Brazilian at the wing-back position, and if that is the coach’s decision, it will be interesting to see if the Brazilian is up to the task.
