Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that their stay at Wembley have hurt Spurs this season in terms of results. The north London club have been forced to play their home matches at Wembley since the last season. The construction of the new stadium at White Hart Lane has taken more time than expected, which has, as per the Argentine gaffer, hurt his side’s chances this season.
Speaking to the media ahead of their home match against Watford in the Premier League, the Spurs gaffer said, “Our thought was to play in September from the beginning of the season in the new stadium and now we are in February and we don’t know if we are going to play there.”
He added, “Of course, it is a massive disappointment for everybody. First of all for Daniel (Levy) and the board, that they cannot deliver the job on time. Then you can see for our fans at Wembley every week that things are going down and down and down because people are disappointed with the situation. And of course, that affects the team and everybody. That is why it is my responsibility to be positive and optimistic. My job is to call to the fans to give the last push that we need. The club needs the help of the fans because they are the core and the soul of the club and this is a massive moment.”
Pochettino concluded, “I know I can ask for more, but all together we need the last push to finish in the top four or maybe be a real contender.”
