Former Tottenham Hotspur player Paul Miller has taken to Twitter to praise chairman Daniel Levy for delivering the club a new stadium.

The new 62,062 capacity seater stadium officially opened its doors on Wednesday evening for the visit of Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Miller came through the ranks at Spurs and made over 200 appearances for the club, winning the FA Cup on two occasions along with the UEFA Cup in the 1983/84 season.

He has thanked Levy for providing a legacy for generations to come in Tottenham, despite having encountered frustrations with the construction of the project.

The stadium is now the second biggest club ground in England behind Old Trafford and is a triumph of modern engineering.

Despite the stadium being new, the maximum distance in meters from the pitch to stand for fans is just 7.9 metres. In comparison West Ham fans are 20m away from the pitch, and those at the Emirates are 13.8m.

Here’s what Miller had to say on social media.
