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.”
Sherwood rejected talk Lamela is out for the season but said "I don't think he is anywhere near resuming training or being up for selection"
