Tottenham Hotspur striker Lucas Moura’s relationship with Mauricio Pochettino had reportedly become strained.

Lucas Moura tweeted for the first time about Tottenham Hotspur since Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking, and opted not to reference his former manager.

Plenty of Tottenham’s squad left public messages of thanks to Pochettino on social media.

However, Lucas opted to simply post a picture of himself in training, kicking the ball with his left-foot and referencing happy memories.

Lucas was, of course, reminding Tottenham fans of the heroics he pulled off in last season’s Champions League semi-final against Ajax.

The Brazilian attacker scored the winner, and his hat-trick goal, with his left-boot to put Spurs into the final.

Interestingly, UOL Esporte claim that it was after that famous goal when Lucas and Pochettino’s relationship began to deteriorate.

The report from Brazil claims that Lucas became disillusioned with Pochettino after he was dropped for the Champions League final.

Lucas is now said to be keen to work with Jose Mourinho, as he hopes for more game time at Tottenham.

It is, therefore, interesting to see that Lucas failed to publicly mention Pochettino’s departure.

While that doesn’t mean that the pair necessarily did fall out, as he could have said his goodbyes in private, it does appear to give some credence to the latest reports about the state of their relationship.
