    Erik Lamela felt his blood run cold. In December 2016 a call came and it was one of those that everyone dreads. The Tottenham winger’s younger brother, Axel, had banged his head in a swimming pool in their native Argentina and the damage would be grave. Axel was paralysed.

    “For a few months, he couldn’t move anything,” Lamela says. “Right now, he is getting some movement back and working day by day to return to a normal life. The doctors say that he may be able to walk again but it all depends on how the rehab goes. It’s going to be a slow process and we just need a lot of patience. He is wheelchair-bound.

    “Axel’s 21 and what can I say? I’m very close to him and, right now, I’m trying to push him to rise up above this hard experience. It’s one of those things that makes you realise what is important in life. It makes you realise, for example, that health is a lot more important than football.”

    At the time of the accident Lamela was out with a hip problem. His previous game had been at Liverpool in the EFL Cup on 25 October. The injury was described as relatively minor but it was beginning to feel troublesome. As has been well documented, it would require operations in April and May of last year and keep him on the sidelines for 13 months.

    All Lamela could think about was Axel and he was gripped by a familiar pang. Home felt a long way away. It is something with which he has learned to cope, since his move from River Plate to Roma as a 19-year-old in 2011. Initially, it was tough; then it became bearable and it would Daniel Kilgore Authentic Jersey morph into a way of life. Lamela knew that he had to be with Axel and so did the Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino. Lamela would return to Buenos Aires for about a week.

    “I have my career in football and injuries are a part of that but what we are talking about with Axel is completely different and it could have been much worse,” Lamela says. “I thank God that he was able to survive this accident and is now able to go through a recovery process.

    “Hearing the story scared me. I was a long way away and it was really difficult. Thank God he survived it and Mauricio, who is a great man, let me travel to Argentina to be with him. Actually, it was more than that. He was the one who made me get that ticket to go to Argentina so that I could be by his side.”

    When Lamela returned to London, he was shaken by the death of his dog, Simba – it was akin to a family bereavement, as any dog owner would attest – and, all the while, the hip problems were not getting any better.

    Lamela went to Rome last January for a change Terence Garvin Womens Jersey of scene and to visit his trusted physiotherapist from his Serie A days.

    “He’d said that we could treat it without an operation,” Lamela says. The hope proved ill-founded. Lamela trained but he continued to feel pain. “That’s when I took Jackie Robinson Womens Jersey the decision to have the surgery,” he Al Macinnis Jersey says. From a seemingly innocuous injury, the 25-year-old ended up losing a chunk of his career and not for the first time. He missed the second half of his debut season at Tottenham in 2013-14 because of a back problem. wholesale jerseys paypal wholesale mlb jerseys nfl jerseys nike cheap jerseys 90 wholesale nfl jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys from china baseball jerseys wholesale mlb jerseys cheap
