Former Everton striker Andy Gray has suggested that Tottenham should make the decision to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season. Speaking to beIN SPORTS, the pundit said that the club would be making a mistake by moving stadiums in the middle of the season as it could potentially derail their campaign.
The 63-year-old said he didn’t understand why Spurs are keen to move given that they are in the knockout stages of the Champions League and still in the title race. He further added that Spurs are already acclimatised to Wembley having played there for 18 months and will likely take some time to adjust to their new surroundings if and when they move.
“If I was at Tottenham now, I would make a decision. I’d want to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season,” Gray said. “You’re in the knockout stages of the Champions League, second in the Premier League. They’ve been there for 18 months.”
“Why would you want to go to a brand new stadium in the middle of the season, when you’re still in the knockout stages of the Champions League and you’re in with a chance of winning the league. Doesn’t make sense to me.”
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock claimed earlier in the week that the Premier League should enforce Tottenham to play the rest of their home games at Wembley in order to make sure Cardiff’s relegation rivals don’t get an unfair advantage.
The suggestion was shot down by Pochettino who has made it clear that the club will be moving into their 62,062 capacity stadium as soon as it is completed.
