Ideal start for Erik
01 August 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
It's a case of so far, so good for Erik Lamela this summer.
The Argentinian winger stressed from the start the importance of pre-season after a back injury ended his first campaign last term in late December.
He impressed in our Tour matches against MLS teams Seattle, Toronto and Chicago highlighted by a two-goal show in our 3-2 win against Toronto and a lively first half against Chicago, forcing goalkeeper Sean Johnson into fine saves on our way to a 2-0 victory.
“I am happy with my situation because I had a long injury and now I can train normally,” he said. “The Tour went well and I feel good.
“This pre-season is very important for me, for my fitness and I’m hoping for a big year.
“I think I can play better than I did last season and I hope this happens for me and for the Spurs fans. I would love to do well for them.”
