Tottenham’s Erik Lamela still getting to grips with driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road
Spurs’ summer signing Erik Lamela has revealed that he is not yet accustomed to driving on the left as he gets used to living in a new country.
Thankfully for Tottenham fans, it’s apparently just the motoring laws that are stopping the Argentine star from feeling fully at home.
He said: “Cars on the opposite side of the street seems strange to me but I am still in a phase where London is new and I am taking it day by day.
“London is a beautiful city with many places of interest, but I am a player and it is not easy to fit in too much tourism.
“I spoke with Aguero and Zabaleta, and they always supported me to make the jump to English football, and now it is down to me to demonstrate that it wasn’t an error.
“I am still adapting to London life, but England was always a country that interested me. That is on a personal level and at Spurs I am working to be one of first the names in the starting XI. That is my big objective.”
