After Tottenham brushed Cardiff City aside on New Year’s day, Neil Warnock suggested in his post-match press conference that Mauricio Pochettino’s side should continue to play all of their home games at Wembley this season so as to make sure Cardiff’s relegation rivals don’t get an ‘unfair advantage’
Tottenham’s move to the new stadium has been delayed due to issues with the electric circuitry which has taken the club several months to sort out. However, the stadium now looks close to completion with the club even recently running a fan familiarisation event for 6,000 season ticket holders to visit the south stand.
However, Spurs boss Pochettino is keen to move into the club’s new home as soon as is practically possible and has already told chairman Daniel Levy of his wishes.
If rumours are to be believed, the club is expected to move into their 62,062 capacity stadium at the end of January or early February. Warnock, however, suggested that the Premier League should enforce Tottenham to play their remaining games at the national stadium.
This really didn’t sit well with Pochettino, who suggested that it is Spurs’ decision if and when to move into the stadium once it is ready.
“I think Neil is a very nice guy. I have a great affection for him but in that point it that is our decision,” Pochettino told The Mail.
“I told Daniel [Levy] the moment we can move, we must move and it is going to be an advantage for us rather than a disadvantage.”
Pochettino suggested that moving into the new stadium would be a massive boost for The Lillywhites. He added: “To be honest my thought is it will be the opportunity to play in our new stadium will be a massive boost for the players, the fans and a fantastic thing for us.”
Tottenham fans will be hoping the move materialises sooner rather than later.
