Poor Erik Lamela. The talented Argentinian was just beginning to show his world-beating potential when he was side-lined by injury. It certainly has helped his standing that in his absence Tottenham are perhaps playing their best football with a free-scoring forward line.
Lamela however seems to remain determined to return to the pitch and have a hand in helping Spurs in their title push as can be inferred by his latest Instagram post. It’s clear that his desire to be back on the playing field is strong and he implies that he is putting his all into training which will bridge the gap between his predicament and his desire.
Spurs fans on social media were appreciative of his spirit, while some would have been pleasantly surprised by remembering that he exists – such has been his extended absence. Here’s hoping the pacey winger will be able to remind the fans of his value soon enough.
