Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on Leicester City and Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in the next week, as they look to put a marker down in both the Premier League and Champions League.

Spurs are currently just five points off the League leaders Man City and Liverpool, and have made it to the round of 16 in the Champions League.

However, Wembley has been a little flat of late, with few Spurs fans making the trip through the chilly winter days to watch the side play.

The general feeling among fans seems to be a general frustration around the national stadium now, as everyone surrounding the club is eager to move into the new stadium.

One man who seems to have finally lost patience with Wembley is Mauricio Pochettino, who does not wish to play in front of a two thirds empty stadium any longer.

He expressed his strong desire to want to play at the new ground as soon as possible.

Poch said (Football London): “Did you see the last few games? 30,000 there, I expect to move and I want to play in front of 60,000, not 30,000.

“I want the 60,000 to help me achieve the three points and I think for the fans it will be a massive boost and impact and that will translate to the team. The people are disappointed to play in Wembley, not because they don’t like Wembley, we all love Wembley, it’s only because we expect to already play at our new stadium.

“It will be massive to play the last five there. I hope that happens and you know very well always I believe that it can be positive to move to the new stadium and will be a massive impact to the team.”
