Tottenham’s Danny Rose admits the atmosphere at Wembley has gone ‘flat’ as frustrations build over their delayed new stadium.
Spurs beat Southampton 3-1 on Wednesday night, though the attendance at their temporary home was just 33,012, their lowest crowd since moving to the national stadium as White Hart Lane is rebuilt.
The club have announced they will continue to play their home matches at Wembley until at least the New Year and Rose admits the situation is far from ideal.
“It’s just not nice anymore. It’s lost its…I don’t feel it’s an honour to play at Wembley.’’ Rose told reporters after yesterday’s game.
“We’re all itching to get in the new stadium and hopefully it’s not too much longer.”
“The atmosphere is a bit flat. I obviously sympathise with the fans, travelling further to come to Wembley but it’s the lowest attendance since we’ve been at Wembley. That speaks volumes.”
Rose started for the first time in two months in the win over Southampton, with goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son lifting Tottenham to third in the Premier League.
