Brian Lamela confirms on Twitter that his brother Erik won’t be starting for Spurs v Newcastle
- November 10, 2013
After a scintillating display for Tottenham against Sheriff on Thursday night, in which Erik Lamela scored, won a penalty and was confirmed as man of the match, many Spurs fans had hoped the Argentine would start against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.
However, if Erik’s brother Brian is to be believed, the former Roma forward has not yet done enough to force his way into Andre Villas-Boas’ starting XI.
It would be no surprise if AVB goes with the same three behind Roberto Soldado that played at Everton: Andros Townsend, Lewis Holtby and Aaron Lennon.
We can though expect to see Lamela at some point, especially if Spurs continue to struggle in creating clear cut chances versus the Toon.
Brian Lamela’s Tweet to a Spurs fan on Twitter can be seen below.
@CaptainBatch i think that no
