Tottenham won 4-1 against Leeds United in the 38th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Elland Road in Leeds, England at 0:30 am (Korean time) on the 29th. However, Tottenham unfortunately finished the season in 8th place in the final standings (60 points).
The match that day was Moura’s farewell match to Tottenham. Moura joined Tottenham from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in January 2018. He showed outstanding performances in the 2018-19 season. He scored 10 goals and 1 assist in 32 EPL games, and also reported a hat-trick against Ajax in the second leg of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) semifinal.
It was Moura who led Tottenham to the UCL final stage for the first time, but his move afterward was disappointing. He struggled to compete for the starting position. He also played 15 league games this season, including the final match, but all were substitute appearances. In the end, Moura decided to take on a new challenge. His contract with Tottenham was scheduled to end this summer, but he left as a free agent (FA).
After the breakup was confirmed, Moura was substituted at the end of the second half against Leeds. Tottenham already had a chance to win with a 3-1 lead. And Moura managed to score three minutes later. Moura, who drove the ball near the half-line and started dribbling, beat four defenders and shot the ball into the net.
When Moura scored, Son Heung-min and other players on the bench ran to congratulate him. It was Moura’s first league goal this season and his 20th EPL goal. Fans went wild when he scored a meaningful goal in a meaningful game.
After the match, Kane gave Moura a thumbs up. He said: “Moura’s goal was amazing. He has maintained a professional attitude even in difficult situations so far. He worked hard every moment. He was always a prepared player. That showed in today’s match. He scored a lovely goal in the farewell game. “, he evaluated.
Son Heung-min also said, “Moura was a friend who made me feel a lot while working together for several years. He was a really sincere friend and a very bright friend. And his greatest strength is that he is always positive. I was so grateful to train and play with him. I will always support Moura’s future,” he said goodbye.
