Erik Lamela says he does not know what Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will do in the future.
Pochettino signed a new five-year deal over the summer but was subsequently linked with the Real Madrid job after Zinedine Zidane unexpectedly left the Bernabeu.
Madrid’s interest soon blew over and the champions of Europe appointed former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui as their new coach.
Pochettino has also been tipped to one day manage the Argentinian and English national teams.
But Lamela, who also committed his future to Spurs this summer, has said he is uncertain about his manager’s future, claiming the compatriots do not talk about what Pochettino will do next.
“Whether he runs the Argentina national team or not, it’s something only he knows, in England, the intensity of the game and the high pressure is a lot of work.”
Lamela hasn’t featured for Spurs since suffering an injury in the warm-up prior to last month’s 3-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old came off the bench and provided a fine run and assist for Harry Kane’s goal against Fulham at Wembley in August.
His supporters will be hoping Lamela can get fit as soon as possible and play a bigger role this season.
