'Seriously? Get rid', 'Bye' – Spurs fans want first-team ace binned after major news reported
Tottenham are set to trigger another contract extension for attacker Erik Lamela, meaning that he will stay at Tottenham through the 2019/20 season – but fans aren’t happy.
The Independent reported the major news on Wednesday afternoon and it will be the second option the club has taken up on the player after already triggering one for next season.
He has impressed since coming back into the first team after injury, although Spurs fans aren’t as impressed as the club.
One fan said the club should bin him and keep Moussa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld instead – both players are rumoured to be leaving in the summer.
Another said that there’s no point extending his contract as he’s not good enough to elevate them from where they are to become champions.
Another asked just how many extension clauses he’s got in his contract.

Here are the best reactions to the news that Lamela will be staying at Tottenham for another year:
id sell at this point. really like lamela. has improved a lot under poch. has skills, his workrate is exceptional and is involved in so much gud stuff. but hes a forward and hardly scores goals. for instance he plays in the same position as salah.

nice guy and shows passion for are club but its time to move on he will never become good.

Why? He works hard, knows how to put a scything tackle in and shows glimpses of skill and vision, but he's slow, one-footed and too often makes too little impact. Not going to help elevate us to champions, is he?

How many extension clauses does he actually have?
