Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela has told Sky Sports News that he loves the club ‘too much’.

Lamela has been with Tottenham for over six years now, which makes him one of the longest serving players left with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The Argentine has thrust himself into starting contention so far this season, with Lamela perhaps playing more this term than many expected.

 

And the 27-year-old, who cost Spurs £26 million to sign from Roma (Guardian), admits that his love for the club is only getting stronger.

“I love Tottenham too much, every season more and more,” he said. “It’s been a lot of seasons here, a lot of years. Every season my love is more. My family is very happy that I’m here.”

Lamela’s time at Tottenham hasn’t always been a roaring success, with injury problems plaguing him.

The tricky winger has missed large chunks of action as a result of being on the sidelines, and he has also not always been the most consistent performer in Tottenham’s team, even when he has been fit.

However, Lamela has caught the eye this term, and his performances have ensured that Pochettino has kept picking him.

Lamela scored in Spurs’s last game against Crystal Palace, which they won 4-0, and could now be involved again with Tottenham set to take on Olympiacos in the Champions League tomorrow.
