Tottenham’s Lucas Moura has admitted that he was ‘shocked’ when he first met Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham, as he told the Players’ Tribune.

Before Moura joined Tottenham for £23 million in 2018 (BBC Sport), he played alongside the ‘superstar’ duo at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 club were at the start of their dominance, following the takeover of the mega rich Qatari group.

It’s there for all to see what the French club have achieved during that period, as they have emulated what someone like Manchester City have done in England.

Nonetheless, Moura was part of that journey and he would have seen some big names and faces walk through the club’s doors.

And the 29-year-old had this to say about both Ibrahimovic and Beckham.

“Becks! Man, what a top guy,” said Moura. “I’m so happy to tell my kids that I played with David Beckham. 

“I was shocked when I first met him and Ibra. These guys are superstars, and you kind of expect them to behave like that, you know?

“You think that perhaps they are a bit arrogant, and maybe they act as if they own the place. They could, because they’re so good. But then you realise that they’re just very hardworking and humble people. 

“Beckham was so shy. He barely said anything. He would arrive quietly, settle down and just work. No fuss. That made a big impression on me, especially since I was so young, because it taught me how to behave.”

Well, Moura now gets to play alongside another ‘superstar’ duo at Tottenham in Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

The duo have been outstanding for Spurs during the past few seasons and if Nuno Espirito Santo is to succeed then he needs to get the best out of them.

It seems as though all three players will be rested for the Europa Conference League trip to Holland.

And instead, they will focus on an all-important and very tough London derby against high-flying West Ham on Sunday.
