Antonio Conte confirmed exciting news that he spoke with key man about change of position to wing-back


Tottenham’s head coach revealed that he discussed with Lucas Moura his future position for the upcoming season.

During the match against the K-League team and in today’s fixture against Sevilla, the Brazilian was in the right-back position. Lucas looked good throughout the game time, constantly engaging in both attacking and defensive efforts, and adding extra spice to the flank.

The Italian specialist has extensive experience in turning wingers at flank defenders. The transformation of Ivan Perisic and Victor Moses reincarnation at Chelsea is a confirmation of that.

Antonio Conte has already informed the Brazilian of his decision and discussed his new role with him.

“I spoke to Lucas and I think this could be a good option. In the past I made Perisic in this position. Before a winger and to become a wing-back.

“He has the quality. The most important thing is the player has to be 100% ready to do it, but he is available for us. Lucas can play in many roles. I’m very happy for his commitment and tonight I think he played a good game.”
