Tottenham Hotspur fans stunned by Lamela’s arrival at pre-season training

Tottenham Hotspur fans have expressed their delight on Twitter after Erik Lamela was pictured reporting to training.

The Argentine has been on the sidelines for the past eight months due to a hip injury.

It has been a torrid time for the 25-year-old, who has had to undergo operations on both his right and left hip.

It was also frustrating for the supporters as Tottenham gave little information regarding Lamela’s progress, which led to some fans questioning whether he will play again.

They all received a nice surprise this morning, though, when the club uploaded a picture of the winger arriving at Hotspur Way for training.

Spurs tweeted various photos of the first team, including Jan Vertonghen, Vincent Janssen and Toby Alderweireld, reporting for pre-season after their summer break.

As expected, Lamela’s presence in the social media post was met with shock and excitement from the fans.

Tottenham will travel to the United States as part of their pre-season tour, during which they will take on Paris Saint-Germain, Roma and Manchester City in the International Champions Cup.
