Lucas Moura has been hanging with some of Hollywood’s most famous celebrities after becoming an overnight star himself for Tottenham in the past few weeks.
Well, posing with their life-size wax replicas at least.
The 26-year-old was pictured with the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Morgan Freeman after visiting one of London’s favourite tourist attractions, Madame Tussauds.
He visited the wax museum on Wednesday afternoon to pose with the lookalike models just 48 hours after starring in Spurs’ 3-0 win over Manchester United.
The Brazilian forward also jammed with Bob Marley, boxed with Muhammad Ali and became one of the X-Men with Patrick Stewart.
The former Paris Saint-Germain winger has been in the spotlight this week for his impressive performance at Old Trafford, which has further heaped the pressure on United boss Jose Mourinho.
Moura scored a brace in the second half on Monday after Harry Kane nodded Spurs in front with an impressive header from a corner shortly after the break.
Moura’s team-mate, Jan Vertonghen, has been full of praise for the tricky forward and has insisted that he is ‘a nightmare to play against’.
Vertonghen told the London Evening Standard: ‘He is a nightmare to play against. We play against him every day in training and he’s just a nightmare.
‘He works hard, he has goals in him — left foot, right foot — and so much pace. He’s a great player and an even better guy, so everyone is very happy.
‘Obviously, he missed pre-season last year and that’s very important to understand the style of play and having the fitness to cope with what the attackers have to do because they run so much.’
Moura has started the season in excellent form with three goals in three games but initially struggled for playing time after joining Tottenham in January.
Moura scored in the win over Fulham and has since gone on to show that he can rival Son Heung-min for a starting spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s first XI.
