There’s no Tottenham Hotspur player who divides opinion among the fans as Erik Lamela. The Argentine playmaker has been on the sidelines for more than a year and is still waiting to get back to action. His return is one of the most awaited comebacks for the club this season. He returned to training alongside Danny Rose in October raising hopes of getting into the matchday squad.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has been treating his compatriot with kid gloves as he’s given the midfielder as much time as possible to recover. Not so easy for Lamela too, considering the multiple surgeries he had to undergo.
There was even a time when it was rumoured that the playmaker could call time on his career but credit to Lamela who held firm and stayed strong to come close to a much-awaited comeback.
And, when it was finally announced on our official Twitter account, the reactions from fans were mixed and varied. Most of them were enthusiastic to see Lamela.
He was pictured with Eric Dier on the training ground and Twitter soon erupted with joy and surprise.
Here are some of the chosen picks from the social media:

Not sure entirely. Poch is waiting for lamela to give him the okay that he is confident in his fitness. I love how hard lamela works for the team I’ll always side with him. If he gets back out there i think he’ll do great
