Tottenham fans on Twitter share their love for Lamela

Tottenham fans on Twitter share their love for Lamela

As most Spurs fans will know, last week saw both Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son sign new contracts at the club. Whilst the media pined over the Premier League’s highest-scoring Korean, the new deal for Lamela went under the radar, however, today the Spurs fans have been sharing how much they appreciate their hard-working Argentine winger.

No one is claiming that Erik Lamela is the most talented player in the Spurs squad, however, he is definitely one of the most hard-working and despite the fact he was born almost 7000 miles away from his current home, he understands the fans and the feelings around the club’s big derbies. When watching Lamela against the likes of West Ham or Arsenal he’s always the first one to throw a big challenge in, and the fans love him for it.

What the plucky Argentine doesn’t have in talent, he makes up for in heart. The 26-year-old has shown glimpses of brilliance in his time in N17, including his brace in the 5-4 win over Leicester in the final game of last season. When on-song, Lamela slips in alongside Spurs attacking force with ease, creating chances and scoring goals. It’s been a common mistake that Spurs fans aren’t very fond of Lamela and that couldn’t be further from the truth as the ex-Roma man continues his career with the Lillywhites.
