Lamela: England is more physical

Erik Lamela has reflected on his early experiences in England following his summer move from Roma to Tottenham.

The Argentine playmaker left the Giallorossi for Spurs during preseason, and the youngster has revealed the difference between Italian and Premier League football.

“English football is a lot more physical,” he admitted to Clarin. “It is not like the tactical game they play in Italy.

“I have talked a lot with my teammates and I know I have to adapt quickly if I am to keep my place in the national team ahead of the World Cup.”
