The wait is nearly over for the Tottenham Hotspur staff, players, and fans, as the club host their first ever home Premier League match at the new stadium tomorrow night.
After two and a half years of building, and a whole lot of planning, the time for Spurs to permanently move away from Wembley and into their new home is finally here.
In a time in which Tottenham are struggling in the League, having picked up only a point from their last 15, the new ground could represent a fresh start and the boost the team needs.
Spurs have five home games out of their last seven matches, presenting an early opportunity to make their new stadium a fortress, and to cement the first good memory by clinching Champions League football.
From the traces of the old White Hart Lane in the floors, to the retro match programmes painted across the walls, there is plenty of love in the new stadium, and that’s exactly what Pochettino enjoys the most.
He said (Football London): “We were lucky, five years ago, when we arrived and Daniel started to share with us the project because he wanted us to be involved. He asked our opinions of different aspects of the design of new stadium, paying attention to our opinion. Most important is the quality and the love, that everyone put to try to deliver this stadium. In every single detail you can see the passion and the love everyone put inside to make it one of the best stadiums in the world.
“For everyone who will come here to watch football to feel it is the best in the world. The players have qualities of the facilities, the changing room. The fans have the best place to watch the game, to spend time with their families and for us the same. For everyone involved in the match day it is going to be the best place in the world. That is what impressed me a lot, you can feel the attention to detail and love. It must be perfect and it’s perfect. That is why we are so impressed with this stadium.”
