After embarking on their International Champions Cup campaign in Orlando, New Jersey and Nashville, Tottenham Hotspur have thanked fans for their record-breaking support while touring America.
Tottenham’s pre-season trip to the US was the club’s 5th venture to the states in the last 7 years, and the level of the support from US based lily-whites did not disappoint.
After the games against PSG and Roma at the Camping World Stadium and the Red Bull Arena, Pochettino remarked that it was as though 80% of the fans were backing Spurs.
At the Nissan Stadium against Manchester City on Saturday, over 40 US official supporters’ clubs were present in a crowd of roughly 56,200, which is a record for a football match in America, according to Tottenham’s official website.
Reflecting on the tremendous support, in an interview also uploaded to the club website, Mauricio Pochettino gave thanks to those supporters, as well as an apology for some poor results. He said:
“It’s true, the support on tour was fantastic, massive support from the people here and that shows how our Club is.”
“Our following here is phenomenal and I just say ‘thanks’ to all of them.”
“We were disappointed (after defeat to City) because as fans, it’s difficult to understand when you lose so we say ‘sorry’ for that and we hope to see them all again soon.”
Also chipping in was Spurs striker Harry Kane, who claimed that the matches were like home games.
“It’s been incredible,” He added. ” Every game we’ve played has been pretty much like a home game through our supporters. It’s been fantastic and a big thanks to the fans for coming out to watch us.”
“Every time we come to America it’s like that and hopefully our supporter groups will keep growing and growing and the Club will get bigger and bigger.”
