Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is confident they will be playing their Champions League quarter-final clash in the new stadium.
Spurs finished the job against Borussia Dortmund as Harry Kane’s second-half goal, which saw him become the club’s leading scorer in European football with 24, sealed a 4-0 aggregate win in the last-16 tie.
They move through to the last eight for the first time since 2011 and will hope to be in their new 62,000-seater home by the time the tie comes around in April.
That could be dependent on whether their likely first game there against Brighton on April 7 is postponed because of the FA Cup or they are drawn at home in the first leg, scheduled to be on April 9 or 10.
Either way Pochettino is already dreaming of hearing the Champions League anthem in their new home. “I expect to play at the new stadium,” he said.
“I was talking with Daniel (Levy, chairman) and he was very positive, I hope and I wish we can play in our new stadium.
“We were sitting and listening to the Champions League song and we were talking with Jesus (Perez, assistant manager) saying it will be amazing to be in the new stadium listening to that song before the game.
“Now we are in the quarter-final I hope we can finish and we can listen to the song there.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
