Ramon Vega has taken to social media to call on the Tottenham board to build a team that matches the club’s world-class stadium.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been in operation for a little over two years but the pandemic has meant that the majority of the matches at the venue have been played behind closed doors.

The club have been able to welcome fans back to the venue this season and they will be hoping to make up for the lost revenue over the last year and a half.

The world heavyweight title clash between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk would have certainly helped to replenish the club, with the stadium being sold out on Saturday night.

Some Spurs fans on social media have complained about the fact that the venue is being used for events such as boxing, accusing the club’s ownership of putting money before success.

Vega has now called on the club to invest the money they make through events such as the Joshua-Usyk fight into the playing squad.

Here’s what the former Spurs defender tweeted: ‘I do really hope it brings some very good money in for Spurs to spend on the players in January or next Summer… now the infrastructure is done we know it’s World Class! so build a team now to match that reputation.’

Spurs Web Opinion

I honestly do not understand fans who complain about the stadium hosting events such as the one on Saturday. Unless we are taken over by a Roman Abramovich/Sheikh Mansour type of owner, who wants to throw endless money at the team, the only way we will be able to compete with the big boys in the long term is through the increased matchday revenue.
