Tottenham boss Sherwood under pressure to play Lamela

Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Tim Sherwood is said to have been asked by his superiors to give club record signing Erik Lamela more game time before the end of the Premier League season, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Sherwood had previously said that Lamela, signed for £30m from Roma, would not feature again this season after spending much of the campaign on the sidelines through injury. But Lamela is expected back in full training next week, by which point there will be three games remaining, and the Tottenham hierarchy is said to want to see Lamela involved.

Chairman Daniel Levy is named by the Telegraph as desirous of seeing Lamela do well at White Hart Lane and wants Sherwood to field the Argentine in an attempt to salvage something from his first season in the Premier League.

Lamela could feature in Spurs’ last two games, against West Ham and Aston Villa, while he may also play a role in Ledley King’s testimonial on May 12. Thus far Lamela has played only nine teams in the league for Tottenham and it is suggested that as Sherwood is expected to leave his post this summer, he could ignore his boss’s wish.

Spurs are currently sixth in the table, six points behind Everton and seven points adrift of a Champions League place. Their next game sees Fulham provide the opposition, while Stoke City are Tottenham’s other opponents remaining.
