Much has been made of Tottenham’s new stadium this season, but unfortunately for the players, fans and staff, the headlines have been largely negative.
The stadium was set for its grand opening against Liverpool on September 15, but delays have pushed this date back indefinitely.
Daniel Levy has extended Tottenham’s Wembley stay until December 15, but rumours are swirling that the ground may not be ready until early January, with one source claiming that March 2019 is more realistic.
Spurs were drawn at home in the third round of the Carabao Cup, but unfortunately Wembley is already in use that weekend.
Tottenham were therefore given an ultimatum, find a new ground to play at, or reverse the fixture to allow opponents Watford to play at home.
The North London club lumped for option one, settling on MK Dons’ Stadium MK, where star Dele Alli learned his trade in League 1, before Spurs snapped him up.
Reports have now emerged, claiming that Alli actually requested that the club move for a Stadium MK move, after he heard of the possibility.
“It’s going to be a great experience to go back there.”
