Tottenham winger Erik Lamela is clearly excited about the signing of his Argentine countryman Giovani Lo Celso, as per the Ham and High.
The 23-year-old has not yet made his Spurs debut, but Lamela has assured the supporters that they’ll like what they see from the midfielder.
He said: “He’s an unbelievable player. The fans will know him soon. He’s very technical, an amazing left foot and he runs a lot. He will be good for the team.
When I came here, I was very young and there weren’t too many players around me like now, where we have a very good unit. As Argentinians, we’re together to help him, with the other guys in the group.”
TBR’s View – Lo Celso needs to adapt more quickly than Lamela did
Like Lamela, Lo Celso has come to Tottenham late on in a summer transfer window, robbing him of a pre-season to try and adapt.
That may set Lo Celso back somewhat, but he cannot afford to make a slow start because Tottenham need him in, ready to help the team as soon as possible – especially on the evidence of Saturday’s match.
Lamela took a long time to settle – and many would argue he’s still not showing his absolute best form – but as he says, he can help his countryman make the adjustment.
