Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier has urged people to look at the bigger picture in regards to the delayed stadium build.

It is still up in the air whether Spurs will move into the new ground in November, December, or next year.

Spurs have found a relatively comfortable home in Wembley after the past 18 months though, and seem to be far from a disadvantage for using it.

Eric Dier also makes a wonderful point about the new ground, when you think about how long the club will use it for, a couple of months is so irrelevant.

This time next year, fans will be in a new 62,000 seat stadium, and will still have the memories of beating Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley.

It really is a great time to be a Spurs fan, and hopefully the new state of the art ground will only push the team and the club on further.

Football London report Eric Dier said: “The stadium, I don’t think people need to get too hung up on it.

“The fact is when we move in the stadium is going to be something that is going be fantastic for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for the next 100 years.

“People need to be able to step back and look at the bigger picture.

“The stadium is going to benefit the club in so many ways. And that’s what everyone should focus on.

“They shouldn’t focus on if it’s going to be done in November, December…that month is going to be so insignificant when you look at the bigger picture.

“Obviously we’re all really excited get into the new stadium. Last season everyone was really looking to it. The closer we got to the end of last season everyone was looking forward to it.

“Moving into the new stadium, I understand the excitement around it. But last season we played all season at Wembley and we became very comfortable there.

“It’s almost normal and natural now that we play there, and we feel comfortable there.”
