Erik Lamela desperate to prove his worth at Tottenham
Erik Lamela vows to show Tottenham Hotspur fans what he can do next season
Erik Lamela has vowed to show Tottenham Hotspur fans what he can do next season.
The Argentina international’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months after a disappointing, injury-hit campaign resulted in him making just three Premier League starts for the north London club.
I am confident you will see a much better me this season
But Lamela, who joined Spurs in a club-record £30m deal from Roma last summer, is focused on enjoying a productive second season at White Hart Lane under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.
“A footballer always feels lonely when he cannot play for whatever reason and I felt very lonely at times last season,” Lamela told The Sun.
“But I am getting in good shape and am determined to show Tottenham the real Erik Lamela this season.
“I have recovered from my injuries, we have a new manager and I cannot wait to play.
“I am confident you will see a much better me this season.”
