Tottenham have come a long way since Mauricio Pochettino took up the managerial reins in North London back in 2014.
Under the stewardship of the Argentine, the club have competed consistently at the top end of the Premier League and have become Champions League regulars.
While Spurs are yet to win a trophy under Pochettino, there is no doubt that they are transitioning into one of the biggest clubs in Europe, a fact which is driven home by their state of the art new 62,062-capacity stadium.
Despite the club’s title ambitions falling short this season, former Spurs midfielder Chris Waddle has backed the Lillywhites to win the Premier League within the next two years.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live (27/04/2019), Waddle said, “Tottenham’s going in the right direction. I’m sitting in this wonderful new stadium, which is unbelievable and they are going the right way.
“In a year or two, you will be talking about them winning the Premier League.”
The Former England international stated that the income that the club will be able to generate from the venue will help them compete with Europe’s elite.
He added: “I just think the income they are going to generate. They have got to pay the debts off, but if they are paying it off by the money they are generating, which after four games has been unbelievable figures.
“You are talking about NFL here and Rugby matches here. Not long ago, people were talking about selling Wembley.
“Tottenham’s going to take over Wembley, I think. They’re going to get all the events. Everything is going to come around here – once they get the money in and the test will be when are they going to buy a player for a lot of money? And can we keep hold of the big star.”
Spurs Web’s Opinion:
While things seem to be going in the right direction for Spurs, it is important not to get carried away as the current project can come undone in a couple of years. However, there is certainly no denying that the stadium move will take the club to a different level.
The question is whether Spurs will invest the increased profits in the squad, and whether they buy the right players, as well as keeping hold of the stars they already have.
