Tottenham’s stadium delay, again
According to the Mail on Sunday, Tottenham have suffered yet another delay in their timetable to move into their new stadium.
The headline news is that Tottenham’s latest setback means a move can’t happen until March.
It’s believed that that will rule out any Spurs move from Wembley this season.
The Mail’s update is evidenced by quotes from an anonymous source:
A source close to the build revealed: ‘There are large areas that will simply not be finished in time.
‘But if you can safely get fans in and out, provide toilets and food, the stadium could still host games before the end of the season, even while the finishing touches remain. The vast majority of the hospitality lounges are ready to go.’
Spurs play Brighton at home on April 6. The Mail claim that if Tottenham haven’t moved by then, the Premier League with stop any future move this season.
Tottenham vs Man United
Will Tottenham end Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning run as Manchester United’s interim manager?
Spurs beat the Red Devils 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season.
Harry Kane opened before Lucas Moura chipped in with a brace.
But Man United have looked much better since Jose Mourinho’s exit.
In total under Solskjaer, United have scored 16 goals and conceded just three in five games.
Paul Pogba has led the charge with the 25-year-old directly involved in seven Premier League goals.
Of course, much of the narrative around this game will focus on Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino is thought to be on Man United’s managerial wanted list.
Over the weekend, Gareth Southgate and Diego Simeone have also been said to be Man United targets.
