Tottenham Hotspur’s Erik Lamela may have had a nightmare run of injuries in recent seasons, but he hasn’t lost any of his class off the pitch.
With Spurs now in Shanghai for pre-season, Lamela happened to be in the same city as his former youth coach, who now teaches children in China.
Said coach gave Lamela an hour’s notice that he was bringing a coach load of kids over to the Spurs hotel, with the Tottenham star leaving dinner early to personally meet, greet, sign autographs, and take pictures with them all.
Absolute class from Coco.
