Cooper has admitted that the project has been asked to be completed at “double time” meaning delays are to be expected.

The chief engineer has also called for patience with the stadium set to be “the greatest that’s ever been built.”

Cooper told the BBC:

“We’ve tried to do something in double time.

“If you look at any other project of this nature you wouldn’t have achieved as much as we’ve achieved with the stadium.

“Be patient with us, we understand the frustrations.”

Cooper also labelled the stadium:

“The greatest that’s ever been built.”
