Former chairman Lord Sugar has revealed that he yesterday had a tour of the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Sugar was in charge at Spurs for ten years. His initial investment in the club was just under £8m but he finally decided to sell his controlling interest to Joe Lewis’ ENIC in 2000 for £22m (Guardian).

During Sugar’s time in charge, Tottenham never finished higher than seventh in the league and their only trophy during that time was the Worthington Cup (League Cup).

He described the new 62,062 seater stadium on Twitter as “amazing the best in Uk and Europe and possibly in the world.”

He is now best known for his role on BBC’s The Apprentice and in typical fashion claimed that he had become the first ever person to use the toilet within the new director’s box.

Spurs will release an update on the progress of the new stadium early next month.
