Cape Town - Erik Lamela says Tottenham feels like home now that he has overcome his first-season problems and is firing on all cylinders for the Premier League club.
The 24-year-old struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane after joining from Roma in 2013 as he struggled with injuries, which limited him to just 16 appearances in the 2013/14 campaign.
The Argentina international overcame a back problem at the start of 2014/15 and went onto make 46 appearances in all competitions for Spurs.
Lamela followed that up with 44 appearances last term, including 11 goals in total that included five in the league as well as a hat-trick against Monaco in the Europa League.
Lamela told the club's official website: "At the beginning it was very tough, arriving in England, another style of football, another country, another language.
"I was injured for a long time as well. That was difficult. I played for three months but then I was injured for seven months. That's football, you need to be strong and keep training.
"I feel well now. I feel good at the training ground and after training, I go home and it feels like home. That's important. I'm always focused. I'm happy and that helps on the pitch."
He added: "I try to do my best every game and if I can't always play well, I try to run and run and always help the team. We always need to show that we want to win.
"I always look for the team first. If the team wins, I'm happy. If I play well but we don't get three points, my feeling isn't good. The most important thing is always to win."
