Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed that Celtic still figure in his discussions with teammates at White Hart Lane. The Kenyan midfielder was speaking to Celticquicknews and indicated that he talks about the atmosphere at the Celtic Park.

Wanyama played for Celtic for two years and enjoyed a great spell that made him a fan favourite. He joined Celtic from German club Germinal Beerschot in the summer of 2011.

After his time at Celtic, Wanyama joined Premier League side Southampton and the 26-year-old was once again a success. His presence in the middle of the park was one of the reasons why Southampton were successful during his time there. Wanyama joined Tottenham in the summer of 2016 for £11m.

The midfielder was asked if he discusses the legendary Celtic Park atmosphere with his teammates. Wanyama indicated that he keeps talking about the great atmosphere there and tells them that they need to witness it in order for them to believe!

He said: “Yes they ask me about the atmosphere and I always tell them is the best ever and that they will never understand it until they witness it for themselves. It is an unbelievable atmosphere, for me I have never seen anything like it!”

Celtic are going strong in the Scottish Premiership at the moment and are looking good to win the title once again this season. Their Champions League participation looks set for an early exit and they could soon be playing in the Europa League.

Wanyama knows well that the level of competition in the Premier League is multifold when compared to that of the Scottish Premiership. Under manager Mauricio Pochettino, Wanyama has become the lynchpin of Spurs’ midfield. However, he has been struggling to shake off a nagging knee injury that kept him out of action for much of the season.

There were fears in the Tottenham camp that the midfielder could be out of action until the end of the year. But, those have proved to be false alarms as Wanyama has resumed training with the club.

Although there is no specific date set for his return, Pochettino is expecting to have his star midfielder back as soon as possible.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
