Lamela revelling in Spurs' role

16th July 2019, 19:29 by Aidan Perkins

Erik Lamela says part of his role at Tottenham these days is to help the younger players as he continues to prepare for the new season.

The Argentine is, at 27, among the more senior players in Mauricio Pochettino's squad and he's about to start his sixth season at the club.

The forward says he enjoys trying to help the youngsters develop and he's working hard with the rest of the squad in pre-season with International Champions Cup games coming up against Juventus and Manchester United.

He said on the club's website: "I don't feel old! But it's true, after many years here, I am one who will now help the younger players, pushing them in a good way to help the team because the team is better if everyone is good on the pitch.

"The games on tour this month will be important to test us. We are training hard and we will be ready for the big matches coming, important matches to help the young players training with us."
