Spurs boss Tim Sherwood tells press ‘Erik Lamela is no way near resuming training or being up for selection’

Record Tottenham signing Erik Lamela has been something of a flop thus far.

The Argentianian winger signed from Roma for £30m has barely featured under both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood.

His fitness has been questioned by the press this week and Spurs manager Tim Sherwood admitted on Friday that Erik Lamela is still some way from a return to the first team.

Sherwood said “We’re hoping he’ll be back before end of season, but don’t think he’s anywhere near resuming training or being up for selection.”
