Demolition of White Hart Lane begins


Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy handed over the keys to White Hart Lane on Monday after Spurs defeated Manchester United in the final game at the ground.

With this victory, Tottenham claim their club record 14th successive home win and remaining unbeaten at their North London stadium throughout the season.

Tottenham's first goal was scored by Victor Wanyama in the first half.

Spurs played their first competitive game at The Lane on September 9, 1899, when they beat Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in the Southern League.

"We've secured second spot with two games left and we can go out and enjoy it now".

It was Tottenham's day though and as the final whistle sounded to confirm their highest top flight finish for 54 years, thousands of fans invaded the pitch to celebrate, delaying a post-match ceremony featuring numerous club legends. In its 118 year history, White Hart Lane has seen numerous unbelievable performances and Pochettino believes that this one was "another great performance at White Hart Lane".

In the midst of all the hoopla surrounding the last match at White Hart Lane, an actual football match broke out between Tottenham and Manchester United. Because all together we worked so hard together to achieve all that we have achieved this season. "I think I am very lucky guy because to share the history of such a club in that special moment is so lucky to be here", Pochettino told a postmatch news conference.

Mauricio Pochettino now faces the challenge of keeping Tottenham's momentum going next season at Wembley, a stadium which proved to be more of a hindrance than a help during their unsuccessful European campaign this season. I am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious.

"We have so many good memories and to finish second in the Premier League is a great achievement".

Spurs have dropped just four points at White Hart Lane all season but Kane says Tottenham have to believe they can win the Premier League at Wembley, and said the club would not suffer in the same way that West Ham have at their new home.

Mourinho has been careful to say the least with his squad line-up since winning the Europa League was prioritised but, while fans have been a bit understanding of this, the style of play has a few riled up. It was just our performances on them days weren't great.
