Pochettino insists playing at Wembley ‘is a gift’

Spurs Argentine boss Mauricio Pochettino feels that it is a gift that he gets to manage his team at Wembley every other week.

Pochettino reminisced about playing at the old Wembley Stadium for Argentina at the start of the millennium.

“I played in 2000 with the national team at the old stadium and now every week, to have the opportunity to play at Wembley, is a gift,” said Pochettino ahead of this weekend’s clash against Leicester.

“When I see the arch I say thank you at how lucky we are. It is the best place in the world to play football, and when our stadium is built, White Hart Lane and Wembley will be the two best places.”

Spurs will hopefully play their first game at their new home ground in early 2019 so, for now, Wembley remains their ‘home’.

Pochettino has overseen another great start as his Spurs team continue to overperform and he would love to be in the running for a trophy, both domestically and in Europe, when they finally make their move to the new White Hart Lane.

Spurs are currently third in the league, six points behind Liverpool and eight behind Manchester City.
