Tottenham fans tell Lucas Moura to quit the club

Mauricio Pochettino manager

The Tottenham Hotspur winger has a bit-part role this season.

Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are baffled by Mauricio Pochettino's treatment of Lucas Moura.

The Spurs manager gave Lucas a five-minute cameo in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United in North London.

Thing is, Tottenham had needed a goal for about 15 minutes after George Baldock's equaliser in the final quarter.

And yet, Pochettino refused to call on the Brazilian - who fired his team into a Champions League final in May - until it was effectively too late.

 

His heroics in Amsterdam toward the end of last season mean that Lucas is such a popular figure among fans of the Lilywhites, but the Argentine needs a bit more convincing.

The former Paris Saint-Germain star has only managed 400 minutes of Premier League football - and only 88 of those have come since September.

And Tottenham fans on Twitter believe that the 27-year-old is better off leaving the club. Here's how they reacted to Pochettino giving him five minutes against the Blades:
