Christian Eriksen has revealed he is looking forward to moving into Tottenham’s “amazing” new stadium but says the players are happy to continue playing at Wembley for the time being.
Spurs were scheduled to move into their new White Hart Lane-based home in September but ongoing construction delays have seen the opening date repeatedly pushed back – the Londoners could still be playing home matches at Wembley in January.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have generally performed well at the national stadium, though some supporters are beginning to tire of being away from Tottenham.
But Eriksen, who is set to captain Denmark against Wales in the UEFA Nations League on Friday night, says he and his Spurs teammates are happy to continue playing at Wembley for as long as it takes.
“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home,” said the Dane (via Sky Sports).
“Of course our players and our fans can’t wait for us to get to the new stadium and get started. But these things take time and we all want to make sure it is done perfectly.
“It will be an amazing and incredible place, so we need it to be finished properly. Everyone wants to be in the new stadium but we can’t help with the building or put up bricks.
“So we need to leave it to professionals and let them get on with their job. We need to do ours and concentrate on football. I can’t see it impacting our season.”
Recently captured footage of the new stadium from the air will have seen the mix of excitement and frustration among Tottenham fans grow even larger this week. Hopefully the club will make its big move sooner rather than later.
