Pochettino wants Spurs stadium move ‘as soon as possible’ to ‘boost’ title challenge

Mauricio Pochettino is keen to get into Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium in order to hopefully provide a ‘boost’ to their title chances.

At the half way mark of the season, Spurs are second in the Premier League, six points behind league leaders Liverpool, and more surprisingly, one point ahead of last season’s champions, Man City.

They have achieved this despite the ongoing uncertainties and delays regarding their return to White Hart Lane, which was due to happen way back in September.

However, it is thought that Spurs could finally return to their home ground within the next two months, and Mauricio Pochettino thinks that it could be a big boost to his sides title chances, and he highlighted the role that the Anfield crowd are playing for Liverpool.

“I saw the highlights [of the Liverpool game against Newcastle], the Anfield crowd are desperate to win and are showing their support to the team.

“Anfield was amazing, every game Liverpool are at Anfield is a party and that sometimes makes a difference.”

“We cannot ask more from our fans, they are doing a fantastic job. The circumstances of this period in the club, we need to be strong and we cannot complain.

“It’s not easy to get to Wembley on public transport, it’s not easy.

“Our fans tried to raise the atmosphere but in a 90,000 stadium, we’re limited to 51,000. We had 45,000.

“That is why when I was asked before, ‘Do you want to move into our new stadium as soon as it is ready?’

“I said ‘Of course, as soon as possible,’ because it’s going to be a massive boost for the team. It’s going to be a place where the fans can help the team achieve more. There is no doubt.

“I am so happy with Wembley but tomorrow, if the new stadium is ready, we’ll move to our new house.”

Despite their stadium woes, Spurs have scored 11 goals in their last two outings, including a 5-0 hammering of Bournemouth at Wembley on Boxing Day.
