Robbie Keane shares what he told Stephen Carr about Tottenham's new stadium

Robbie Keane of Spurs Legends celebrates scoring a goal during the Legends Match between Spurs Legends and Inter Forever at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on March 30, 2019 in London, England.

Tottenham Hotspur are all set to move into their new home next week.

Newly appointed Republic of Ireland assistant coach, Robbie Keane, following a press conference at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Tottenham legend Robbie Keane spoke to reporters before the legends game at the club's magnificent new stadium yesterday, and shared what he told Stephen Carr about the 62,062 capacity arena, as quoted by Football.London.

Spurs have played all of their home games at Wembley Stadium since the start of the 2017/18 campaign, but they will move into their new home on Wednesday night, when they play host to Crystal Palace.

 

There have been a few test events at Tottenham's new stadium over the past month or so, most recently with the Tottenham legends taking on Inter Milan legends yesterday evening.

Keane took part in the match, and he shared with reporters before the game what he told his fellow Irishman Stephen Carr about Spurs' new stadium, as quoted by Football.London:

"I was just talking to Stephen Carr and we were saying it’s like White Hart Lane, the feeling, the spirit, it’s White Hart Lane. It’s one of the most incredible things I’ve seen in a long time. Let’s look to the future now and bringing trophies here for Tottenham Hotspur."

Tottenham's new home is arguably the most impressive stadium in world football, but to make it a truly special place, Mauricio Pochettino's men must start winning major honours sooner rather than later, and only time will tell if they are capable of doing just that.
