The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are longing for the return of Erik Lamela. The Argentine hasn’t played for what feels like forever, having been suffering from a somewhat mysterious injury for much of the year. He’s a fan favourite in the pub, and so the Spurs faithful have been keeping an ear out for any update on the winger.
Prior to his injury he was getting back to his best form, offering electric pace, technical brilliance and fantastic energy down the wings, and that’s something that his side has lacked in his absence.
Fortunately, then, Pochettino’s latest update on the matter will come as music to the ears of those in the pub. According to Pochettino (via Alasdair Gold on Twitter), Lamela could be on the bench for Spurs this weekend against West Brom if he feels ready enough, though a spot with under-23s could also be a possibility.
Whatever the case, it seems clear that the winger is on the road back to recovery, and it could just be a matter of weeks before he is properly back in the fold.
Unsurprisingly, this has led to delight in the Transfer Tavern, and it’s a similar tale over on Reddit. Spurs fans have taken to the Tottenham fan Reddit page to discuss the news, and it’s fair to say that they are pretty excited. See what they’ve had to say below…
