Mauricio Pochettino is backing Tottenham’s club bosses to find the English side a temporary stadium for the 2017/18 season, and believes moving to Milton Keynes is a possibility.
Earlier this week, the club was forced to announce that they are ‘highly unlikely’ to move into their proposed new stadium, Northumberland Park, in 2017, and as the 57-seater ground is under construction, Spurs will have to find somewhere else to play their home games for a season, adjacent to their current stadium White Hart Lane.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino was impressed at the English League 1 outfit’s home ground during a recent visit when the home side beat Manchester United in a Capital One Cup second round tie.
He has then said that it is a possibility that Spurs will move to that stadium temporarily.
“I think every single decision that is made by the club is to improve the club and to give it better facilities and make things better for supporters,” he said.
“I was in Milton Keynes to watch the game against Manchester United in the Capital One Cup.”
“It was the first time I’ve watched a game there, and it is a very good stadium with very good facilities but nothing more, it’s just a possibility.”
“We need to speak a lot about this decision, because we need to take all the information and different situations for the club, the supporters and the team.”
“At the moment we don’t talk about this decision.”
