Writing on Instagram, West Ham United star Manuel Lanzini, who recently scored a sensational equaliser against the Lilywhites in a memorable 3-3 draw, has heaped praise on Spurs ace Giovani Lo Celso in reply to his post after a sensational international showing – branding him a ‘magician’.
Lo Celso, who registered an impressive 94% pass accuracy for his country after coming on during a 1-1 draw with Paraguay, shined for Argentina – with South American journalists lauding his ‘perfect’ display.

Replying to Lo Celso’s post, the Hammers midfielder called him a ‘magician’ – and it’s likely that Spurs supporters will be in full agreement after his latest showing.
