Tottenham Hotspur management are pressuring Tim Sherwood to push Erik Lamela back into the team, per Matt Law at the Telegraph.
Forcing a half-fit Lamela on to the field to give Spurs supporters false hope is a terrible idea.
What if Lamela gets injured again?
Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood revealed right-sided attacking midfielder Erik Lamela will not play again until next season.
"He [Lamela] has been out for a very long time, so he is going to need a pre-season before he can play again," Sherwood said, per ESPN. "Hopefully he is using this time to learn English and that will stand him in good stead when he comes back."
The latter sentence from Sherwood indicates Lamela's inability to communicate in English has been a significant barrier to the Argentine international making a smooth transition to England.
Lamela, a £30 million signing, has not scored in the Premier League this season.
