Lamela determined to prove worth at Tottenham

Erik Lamela is determined to prove his worth at Tottenham this season.

Lamela has promised White Hart Lane will play host to the 'real' him - so highly rated when starring in Serie A for AS Roma.

"A footballer always feels lonely when he cannot play for whatever reason and I felt very lonely at times last season," he told The Sun.

"But I am getting in good shape and am determined to show Tottenham the real Erik Lamela this season.

"I have recovered from my injuries, we have a new manager and i cannot wait to play.

"I am confident you will see a much better me this season."
