Lucas Moura has been named the Premier League Player of the Month for August following his stand-out displays at Tottenham
The Brazilian winger enjoyed his finest spell at Spurs last month following his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain in January.
Moura scored his first league goal in Spurs’ 3-1 win over Fulham and then produced a man-of-the-match performance by netting a brace in the club’s shocking 3-0 win away to Manchester United.
Now Moura becomes the 22nd Spurs player to win the Premier League Player of the Month and the fourth Brazilian to do so.
“It is difficult to explain what I am feeling,” said Moura on the Premier League website.
“I am so happy because I know it is not easy to win this trophy.
“I waited a lot for this moment and I need to enjoy and to keep working because I believe I have much more that will come.”
Juninho, Edu and David Luiz are Brazil’s previous winners of the award.
Moura will return to action for Spurs on September 15, where they will host league leaders Liverpool at Wembley.
