Wolves star Pedro Neto picks Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as his favourite
The 21-year-old Portuguese forward has been with the Midlands outfit since the summer of 2019, having arrived from Serie A giants Lazio. In his first season with Wolves, Neto visited the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a Premier League game in March 2020, just before the lockdown was enforced.
In what was a thrilling encounter, the Black Country outfit prevailed 3-2 with goals from Matt Doherty, Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez while Serge Aurier and Steven Bergwijn were on target for Tottenham Hotspur.
Neto missed the away game against Tottenham in the season gone by as he was sidelined with an injury. But, one visit was enough to leave the three-time capped Portgual international marvelling over the facilities in place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“The stadium was amazing, like in American Football. It was brand new and I’d never seen a stadium like it. It’s different, almost from the future.”
Neto is not the first rival player to be amazed by the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Previously, Norwich City youngster Max Aarons, who interestingly is a transfer target for the club (h/t Sky Sports), had also spoken about his admiration for the state-of-the-art home ground of Spurs.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was scheduled to open in 2018, but opened in April 2019 with a game against Crystal Palace. The state-of-the-art 62,303-capacity stadium, designed by Populous, was built at a cost of £1.2 billion.
