Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is considered as rude and aloof among non-footballing employees at the North London club, according to The Athletic.

The midfielder is according to a source, a popular figure in the dressing room who has a dry sense of humour and is happy at the club.

Lo Celso is considered to be a quiet character who rarely gives public interviews, the only time he has spoken to the British media was after a goalscoring appearance in the 4-0 win at Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League where Juan Foyth acted as his translator.

The Argentine international’s periodic unavailability has also been a source of annoyance for some within the club with his recent decision to jet off to South America to represent his country having been met with resentment.

Tottenham left himself, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez fully aware of how unhappy the club were over the situation which saw them unavailable for the defeat at Crystal Palace and the trip to Rennes as a result of their international involvement.

It is not the first time in which Lo Celso has been fined by the club, he was also reprimanded for his actions when he broke lockdown rules last year along with Erik Lamela and Sergio Reguilon by hosting a Christmas party at his home (The Sun).

Lo Celso is becoming a figure of frustration among some pockets of the fan base which is largely due to the fact that he does not appear to have a defined role within the side. 

He rarely influences the game consistently in the final third of the pitch with some of his issues coming from his struggles to stay fit for long periods of time.
