Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has confirmed Lucas Moura will leave the club at the end of the 2022-23 season.
The Brazilian winger has suffered serious injury problems this season and has made just 11 appearances in all competitions. In addition, with the emergence of Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison, Mora’s draft has dropped further.

“You know it’s the club’s decision, it’s been a difficult season for Lucas for sure, but it’s been a tough one for us as well. To be honest, Lucas was a tough time for us when I was planning the season. An important player.”
“But if you look at the start of his season until now, Lucas has probably only played one game, was miserable in the Champions League against Marseille and didn’t play the whole game with us.”
Conte explains how Tottenham The season has suffered due to injuries to Moura, Richarlison and Kulusevski, and said:
“First of all, I think the damage is done to me and to the team. A player like Lucas is a good player. Also last season, he helped us get into the Champions League. My plan, in my opinion, is Had him in my squad but we couldn’t use him because of injuries.”
“It’s been a really difficult season, especially because both Kulusevski and Richarlison have been injured twice. It’s not easy to face. Then if you ask the club’s decision, I respect the club’s decision.”
