Brazil star Paulinho confidence regained after Tottenham nightmare

Paulinho has revealed how he changed his career path after leaving Tottenham. The 29-year-old spent two dismal seasons in north London before leaving for Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande for £10million in 2015. And Spurs fans must be rubbing their eyes after watching Paulinho, who moved to Barcelona in 2017 for £35, win the man-of-the-match award in Brazil's 2-0 win over Serbia last night, which saw them book a World Cup last-16 clash with Mexico. "From four years ago, a lot has changed in my life and career," said Paulinho. "Leaving England was good for me. I had lost my self confidence, but I've regained it. I've played very well, helped my club to win [La Liga]. I'm here because I worked and I deserved it. In four years, I've learnt a lot."
