Erik Lamela is already dividing opinion after he wore gloves in Australia


Erik Lamela is the sort of player that drives fans crazy and after just one pre-season match on the other side of the world he was already back at it.

The Argentina international trotted out onto the MCG wearing gloves for the match against Juventus in Melbourne. A lot of Spurs fans were not impressed.

To be fair, it was cold in Melbourne - by Australian standards anyway - as the temperature dipped below 10 degrees.

You do kind of get the feeling, though, that Lamela would be wearing those gloves to the MCG even if it was the Boxing Day Test in the middle of the Aussie summer.

As the debate raged on Twitter, Lamela then went and did what Lamela does and scored a goal to silence all the chat.

The 24-year-old started to show signs he could fulfil his grand price tag at stages during last season and just as quickly as some fans raged at him for his gloves, others were forecasting a big season ahead.

After just one pre-season game, others were not about to have their opinions changed.

You get the feeling that's the way it's always going to be for Lamela at Spurs.
