Erik Lamela is back at Tottenham and ready to begin pre-season training
Erik Lamela has taken to social media to reveal his excitement at being back in England ahead of pre-season training with Tottenham.
The Argentina international has been enjoying some well-earned downtime away from football in Ibiza in recent weeks after his involvement in the Copa America with his national side.
However, the playmaker is now back in London and reported to Tottenham’s Spurs Lodge training complex on Thursday to begin his preparations for the new season.
And the attacking midfielder used his personal Instagram account to post a picture of himself ahead of training.
Lamela shared the photo above on the app and wrote: “Preseason begins, happy to see the guys again let’s go to work! #COYS”
Lamela played a key role in helping Mauricio Pochettino’s men secure qualification for next season’s Champions League after their third-placed finish in the Premier League last term.
The Lilywhites challenged for the title for much of the campaign but ended up having to settle for a third-placed finish behind bitter local rivals Arsenal in the table, and champions Leicester City.
