Tottenham Hotspur were originally hoping to get their stadium opened by September 15 this year, in time to face Liverpool in the Premier league.
However, fast forward to December and fans are still waiting, with a new grand opening not expected until well into the new year.
Recent comments from Pochettino stated that Daniel Levy is now worried that a stadium switch could disrupt the team’s excellent form.
Spurs currently sit second in the Premier League after their best ever start to a campaign. The team are also in the last 16 of the Champions League, and the semi-final of the Carabao Cup.
What Levy may now do is use the impressive Spurs form as an excuse to delay the stadium opening until next season.
Why would he do this? Simple, to keep the big names around. Everyone knows that Pochettino wants to lead Tottenham into their new ground, so if the stadium wasn’t ready until next season, he surely wouldn’t leave would he?
The same could be said about the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen. Delaying the stadium opening could result in them staying for longer than they may well do otherwise.
