Lucas Moura: 'I still don't understand Paris Saint-Germain exclusion'

Moura: 'I still don't understand PSG stance'
Tottenham Hotspur attacker Lucas Moura says that he still does not understand why he was barely used by Paris Saint-Germain during the first half of the season.

Forward Lucas Moura has suggested that he watched many of Paris Saint-Germain's games during the first half of the season at home.

Moura made just six substitute appearances for the French giants before making the switch to Tottenham Hotspur, where the Brazilian has penned a long-term deal.

However, the attacker has acknowledged that he still does not understand why he spent so much time on the sidelines between August and December.

The 25-year-old told France TV Sport: "I didn't understand why I was left out of the team. Until today, I don't understand.

"I had my best season the year before, second highest goalscorer, a lot of assists, and the most used player, and all of a sudden, the season started without me playing. I was at home.

"I went to training but at matches, I was at home. I was not even part of the group."

Moura has made two starts and three substitute outings since making the switch to North London.
