Mauricio Pochettino has admitted it would be “tough” to move into the new stadium this season. Tottenham’s new home was expected to open in September, however, there have been several problems in recent months.

Spurs have used Wembley as their home stadium for all games, but Pochettino still hopes Tottenham play some games at the new ground (h/t Sun):

“My gut says it will be tough but my wish is so big and my hope and always my dream is to finish playing this season at the new stadium. It will be massive to play the last five there. I hope that happens and you know very well always I believe that it can be positive to move to the new stadium.”

The manager also spoke about the sparse crowds at Wembley. Pochettino claimed that the last time we played at the national stadium, only 30,000 turned up.

The Argentine believed that moving to the new stadium would see crowds of more than 60,000 and said that the boost from the fans would help the team win.

Pochettino also acknowledged that the fans are a little upset with the current situation only because they expected to be watching Spurs at the new ground.

Even with the stadium delays, Tottenham have done a great job this season and are still in with a chance of winning the title.
