Erik Lamela’s brother Brian confirms on Twitter Argentine is happy at Spurs & was at WHL for West Ham defeat

One of the most surprising aspects of Tottenham’s defeat to West Ham on Wednesday night was the lack of an appearance from two of their biggest summer signings.

Roberto Soldado did not make it off the bench and was not even called upon when Emmanuel Adebayor departed.

Whilst Erik Lamela, was not even part of the Tottenham squad for the Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham.

With Spurs in crisis, this puts the summer spending spree in focus and with almost half a season gone, splashing out over 50 million pounds on Soldado and Lamela is beginning to look suspect.

It seems likely that Erik Lamela will no doubt get an opportunity as the games come thick and fast in the next few weeks, despite the fact he is still acclimatising to life in London.

What looks like a serious injury to Andros Townsend, should ensure Lamela is at least part of the Tottenham squad for the visit to Southampton on Sunday.

Erik’s brother Brian has become his official mouthpiece in England, on Twitter where he has over 50,000 followers and he confirmed last night to certain Spurs fans that the former River Plate and Roma forward is still happy at Tottenham.

The final Tweet from Brian was his reaction to the 2-1 defeat to West Ham…
