Lamela sends encouraging message on Twitter, teenage striker looks competitive in training

Erik Lamela

Tottenham Hotspur will play against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League this week.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela has taken to social networking site Twitter to send an encouraging message to the fans.

Spurs came from a goal down to play out a 2-2 draw with North London rivals and 10-man Arsenal at White Hart Lane in the Premier League at the weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will return to action on Thursday evening when they take on Borussia Dortmund away from home in Germany in the first leg of the Europa League last-16 tie.

Lamela has taken to Twitter to suggest that he and his teammates are in good form and are looking ahead to the week.


The Tottenham players were training on Monday, and among those who attended the session was Shayon Harrison (see photo above).

The left-footed 18-year-old striker is playing for Spurs’ Under-21 side at the moment and is rated very highly.

The youngster will hope to break into the first team before the end of the season, but if not, then he could get his chance during the 2016-17 campaign.
