Tottenham are hosting Manchester United in what will be the last game ever in their iconic White Heart Lane, and their manager admitted that it will be hard not to cry.
I am very sensitive person and so emotional, so it will be difficult not to cry. I think for the fans it means a lot but in the same way, and I don’t want to be wrong, I think our fans are so excited to welcome the new stadium, too
Mauricio Pochettino told reporters. Tottenham’s new home, a modern 61,000-seater venue, should be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season.
That doesn’t mean they are happy it is the end of White Hart Lane, but that they are excited towards the progress. They are excited to the future of the club. Be sure it will be very, very emotional but at the same time it will be very, very exciting to welcome the new stadium
the Argentine manager added. Pochettino also talked about Chelsea winning the title, and Antonio Conte’s comment that Tottenham had an advantage over them, because it was his first season in England, while it was Pochettino’s third at White Heart Lane.
Arsene Wenger should win the league every season because he is 20 years in charge, if that is the right way to measure our advantage. I think it’s not fair to measure with me, as it is to measure with Wenger. Twenty years is a massive advantage. Why not win every season? It’s not a criticism [of Wenger]. It was not the best comment from him [Conte]
the Spurs manager said, rather upset.
