Of all the Tottenham signings in the summer, the player afforded the most patience is Erik Lamela.
The Argentine forward has flitted in and out of first team reckoning at Spurs and Andre Villas-Boas has spoken on a number of occasions about Lamela needing to learn English and adapt to the pace of the Premier League.
As a result, the picture above was greeted by many Tottenham fans with delight as it shows Lamela integrating with his team mates on a night out.
To translate the Spanish, Lamela wrote: “Team dinner! Hanging out with mates!”
Predictably, there were plenty of jokes on social media, questioning the attire of Sandro (his hat!), Lamela (his shirt!) and Jermain Defoe.
Vlad Chiriches, arguably the most successful of all Tottenham’s summer signings, seems to get away with it…
