Lucas Moura has clinched silverware just four months after leaving Tottenham in favour of a return to his home nation Brazil. Now he has helped guide Sao Paulo to the Brazilian Cup 11-years after initially leaving his boyhood team that he first made his debut at in 2010.

Articles like this are how you know the sports 'journalists' at that rag are fans of rival teams.

Any opportunity to have a dig at Spurs, they'll take it.

This not winning a trophy agenda that the media peddle everytime someone leaves is quite frankly, boring. Congrats to Moura though!

The way I look at it is our players winning trophies as soon as they move abroad just highlights how much tougher the PL is than other leagues - rather than saying anything negative about our team. It's not like Moura, Ndombele, Lamela, Lo Celso etc. would have walked into the starting line-ups of our top 4 rivals in the PL.

It's far harder to be competitive in the CL / EL when you are battling for the PL title / top 4, compared to in other countries where it's viable to rest key players against Championship / League One level opponents the weekend before and/or after

Man City, Liverpool & Man Utd all had ridiculous strength in depth when they managed to compete for the PL title and also win the CL.

Chelsea finished 6th & 4th when they won the CL and from memory did take risks with player rotations in the PL to prioritise. When is the last time that a non-English team did so poorly in their domestic league but also won the CL?

I've never understood that level of thinking from pundits/'experts' that Kane wouldn't be one of the true greats if he doesn't win stuff. That's mental. It's a team sport.

Yep, would have been much more impressive him leading the charge for us this season rather than going over to the one-team German league.

Football just doesn’t make sense a lot of the time.

I saw it on twitter and thought about it and just laughed. I just find it funny now.
