Erik Lamela sends message to Tottenham Hotspur's supporters

Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela has been in fine form to date this season.

Erik Lamela has told Tottenham Hotspur's official site that he wants to say thank you to the club's fans for the support that they have given him.

Lamela was given an ultimatum by Mauricio Pochettino at the start of the new term, with the Argentine boss telling Sky Sports that this season was make or break for the winger. 

And he has responded well to the challenge, putting in some of his best performances in a Tottenham shirt over recent weeks. 

Lamela starred in Spurs' 4-1 victory over Manchester City at the weekend, and the 23-year-old was grateful for the backing he received for Tottenham's followers. 

“The fans always support me and I can say thank-you for that,” he said. “I’m very happy because we won and we deserved to win.

“We played well, we were aggressive and we showed character to change the result [from 1-0 down].”

Lamela scored the fourth goal in Tottenham's success, rounding Willy Caballero in the City goal to tap the ball into an empty net.

It was a signal of the confidence that he currently is feeling, and he is finally starting to show the form which made Spurs believe he would be such a good addition back in 2013.

Lamela has looked too light-weight to play in the Premier League previously, but he is starting to show signs that he is adapting to the English game - and he has been one of Tottenham's best players to date this season.
