Brazilian midfielder is happy, but still adapting.
Paris Saint Germain midfielder Lucas Moura has admitted that he is still adapting to life in France, but is loving his football at the club, Sky Sports reports.
Rated as one of the best young talents in the world, the Brazilian midfielder joined the French champions over the summer after they won the race for his signature amongst a host of other clubs from around Europe who had been impressed by his performances for Sao Paolo.
Having arrived in the French capital in January he has shown only glimpses of his tremendous potential and has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter, with plenty of other big names to compete with for a place in the team.
And he has admitted that adjusting into a new way of life has been difficult, but remains as committed as ever to making a success of himself in European football.
“I haven’t been able to show everything I can do. I haven’t completely adapted to French football, but I am not bad, I ‘m feeling well there and I like everything there,” he said.
“It’s step by step, my father has always said that. Little by little. I have to build my path. I will not lose heart. I will keep my head up.”
Moura’s tough start to life at the club had prompted speculation of a return to his homeland. However, Sao Paolo vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes has played down the chances of that happening, but has insisted that the door remains open should the player ever decide to come home.
“Sao Paulo doors are open for Lucas Moura to return, but the chances of a return are very tiny,” he said.
