Mauricio Pochettino’s response when asked about Tottenham sharing Wembley with Chelsea

Wembley England

Tottenham could share Wembley Stadium with Chelsea.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Mauricio Pochettino has reacted to reports suggesting Tottenham and Chelsea could be sharing Wembley Stadium in the coming years as they both develop their new stadiums.

When asked about a move to Wembley, Pochettino said: “I think it is a good possibility for us. It’s our option to play at Wembley but I haven’t heard about sharing with Chelsea. It’s a club decision. I think there are different possibilities but we would love to play at Wembley. It is in London and it is close. It is a good option for us. Why not? Milton Keynes is a good option too.”

Pochettino has made it known that Wembley is one of the options that Spurs are considering, and it sounds as if he is favouring the national stadium.

It is in North London, and whilst it will require Spurs fans to go out of their way to get there, it is a much easier journey than getting to Milton Keynes to play in stadium:mk.

However, Pochettino has not yet heard anything about potentially sharing Wembley with Chelsea, despite reports suggesting both clubs have made offers for the stadium.

The Daily Mail reported yesterday that Spurs are happy to share the ground for the one season they need an alternative home, whilst Chelsea want a three-year stay at Wembley.

Both clubs have made the 2017/18 season the campaign they will share the ground, and Spurs have reportedly matched Chelsea’s bid with the hopes of securing a deal.

This report suggests that Spurs are pushing ahead with a deal, and whilst Pochettino does not sound as confident that an agreement is close, Wembley makes the most sense as a temporary home for the North London club.
