While all attention is focussed on the World Cup, pre season is taking shape and Spurs have confirmed another friendly fixture ahead of an important campaign. The club has announced that we will play Schalke 04 at the Lane on Saturday August 9th and the game may give us a chance to take a look at a long term transfer target.
Netherlands’ Klaas-Jan Huntelaar finally gets his opportunity to play at White Hart Lane after years of speculation that he would sign for the club in a permanent deal. The striker is 30 now and has endured his fair share of injuries but he remains prolific having scored 14 goals in 21 matches for Schalke last season.
The game could also give Lewis Holtby the chance to perform against his old club but that will clearly depend on whether the German international is still at Spurs by that point.
Overall, it’s an intriguing clash against quality opposition and you can check out ticket details by heading over to Tottenham’s official website.
