Arsene Wenger reckons Sp*rs’ stadium move might look exciting on paper but in reality, it’ll take a while for the Middlesex outfit to feel at home in their new surroundings.
The 2008 League Cup winners are currently building a new arena so that Daniel Levy can watch NFL games without travelling and could spend next season at Wembley as construction overlaps with the footprint of their current home.
Having steered Arsenal through a stadium move of their own, Wenger predicted that Sp*rs, who have only won the title twice in their history but hosted two of Arsenal’s triumphs, might take a while to build on their ‘prestigious’ history.
“[It’s] very difficult, much more you can imagine,” said Wenger ahead of his 50th North London derby on Sunday.
“First of all, you face financial restrictions, which we did. Overall, it might be less in future because you have more income.
“Secondly because you don’t feel at home like you were before. And you need to recreate a kind of history to feel comfortable and to feel like you play at home. I would say it can take two years [to feel at home].”
On the plus side Sp*rs’ more wealthy fans will get the chance to watch Harry Kane lick windows at close quarters. Not bad for £750 million.
