Villas Boas happy to be patient with record signing, Erik Lamela

After Erik Lamela joined Tottenham from Roma in the summer for £30million, many expected him to come in and make an instant impact, that has not been the case. Instead he has been putting in many indifferent performances. Ahead of the game again Sunderland, Villas boas has defended Lamela saying “We need to be a little bit patient with him, not speaking the language, it’s very difficult.”

“Not only that but coming from a completely different social background. Imagine moving from Roma to Tottenham, it’s a difficult step for him.”

“It took him about six months to settle in Roma. Also position-wise, he started out on the left there, then had a wonderful season on the right.”

So Villas Boas is telling fans to be patient, although for £30million, surely they are entitled to demand more?
