Lamela sends IG message on Star Spurs sold for £11m
Eric Dier offered Tottenham Hotspur fans a blast from the past by uploading one yesterday Instagram Photo by Mousa Dembele.
The Tottenham defender has met his former team-mate while on holiday.
Dembele is one of the best players to don a Spurs shirt over the years, with Mauricio Pochettino once calling him a ‘genius’.
During segments on Soccer Am and other interviews, Lilywhites past and present invariably named the Belgium international the club’s best player.
And Erik Lamela also seems to be a big fan of the powerful midfielder.
In response to Dier’s post yesterday, the Argentine – who left Tottenham last summer – wrote: “Mousalito what a player.”
Kyle Walker, who traded the north Londoners for Manchester City in 2017, posted a goat emoji to suggest his affection for Dembele as a player as well.
Dembele certainly isn’t the greatest of all time, despite Walker’s hint, but he was definitely phenomenal football for Spurs.
In fact, one could argue that Tottenham never replaced him.
The Belgian left North London for £11 million in 2019 and Pierre-Emile Hojberg is the closest thing to a replacement the club has found.
But as good as the Denmark international can be, he doesn’t glide around the pitch, shield the ball or pass like Dembele used to do under Pochettino.
