Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan blasted the Tottenham Hotspur hierarchy following the delay of the new stadium.
The former Eagles owner believes the way in which the club treat the Spurs faithful was wrong and the whole situation could have been played out entirely differently.
As we all know, the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been delayed from the original opening date of 15 Septemeber following health and safety concerns.
However, Jordan believes it is the Spurs fans who have suffered most and the Tottenham board did not help to soften the blow.
He told talkSPORT: “They had an opportunity to diffuse what was happening.”
In regards to Daniel Levy’s approach to the situation, he said: “The fans are going to go up in arms, they’re going to say we didn’t buy any players, they’re going to lambaste me.”
Jordan insisted the Spurs board did not make their decisions with their fans in mind. “I’m going to have to get hold of this news and somehow turn it into a positive and they had a PR opportunity to say to the Tottenham fans that you are the most important part of this club and we are going to give you something back for the disappointment you are suffering,” he added.
Spurs fans now face at least another two Premier League games at Wembley with a third against current championsManchester City expected to be announced very soon.
