Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from Lilywhites winger Erik Lamela. 

This comes after the Argentine shared a post on his official Twitter page apologising for breaking government and club protocols concerning the worldwide pandemic.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

In his post, Lamela said that he deeply regrets his decision and understands the seriousness of his actions going to a family party with fellow Spurs teammates Giovani Lo Celso, Sergio Reguilon and West Ham United’s Manuel Lanzini.

He also added in his post that he is “truly thankful” to everyone working hard to keep the public safe and that he “feels ashamed” knowing he has let people down.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were not shy in airing their responses to this post from the winger.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Lamela’s post? 

“fair play for apologising but it’s time to go” 

@thfcgi

We’re all disappointed in you But learn from what you did and move on

@ReguilonEra

“Hugely disappointing. We expect better of our players. A total lack of social responsibility and care for others. An act devoid of moral courage and doltish disregard for Spurs staff and the others who sacrifice and work to keep you safe. Be the person you’d expect others to be!”

@AF_Spurs_OSC

“Any excuse not to play Erik. Always an excuse not to play. Stealing a living” 

@Mt1Mark

“You’re only sorry you got caught out if you’re totally honest. Also, why be so naive to pose for a photo that was obviously bound to make its way into the public eye?”

“Apologie not accepted awful” 

@thfc_AnderAlex

Spurs signed Lamela, who is now valued at £14.4 million (as per Transfermarkt), back in August 2013 from AS Roma for a fee of £27 million. Since then, the 28-year-old, who is currently valued at £14.4 million, has made 234 appearances for the north London club in which he has managed to score 35 goals and provide 46 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Looking at these responses to Lamela’s post, it appears that this apology has not gone down well with these Spurs fans, with some even suggesting the winger should pack his bags and leave the club.

Do you think Spurs should sell Lamela this month?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Lamela failing to score a goal or provide an assist for Jose Mourinho’s side in the Premier League so far this season and earning himself a fairly disappointing season rating of 6.57/10, maybe letting him go could be beneficial for the club.
