Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to react after Tottenham announced some significant news regarding their stadium.

What’s the story?

Well, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been named among the winners of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) National Awards 2021.

The state-of-the-art arena has now been recognised with 17 awards since it was opened in April 2019, according to Tottenham’s announcement.

Following the achievement, Tottenham’s stadium is now eligible for the 2021 Stirling Prize, with the shortlist revealed on September 16th.

After hearing the news, Lineker wrote the following tweet.

Clearly, the BBC Match of the Day host has decided to poke a bit of fun at his former club’s lack of silverware after hearing the news.

The RIBA award is a very special achievement, although Tottenham supporters want to see footballing success, not architectural success.

In our view, Spurs can secure silverware this season – they’ve been on the cusp of it for too long, and now have the tools to do it.

Nuno Espirito Santo is an excellent manager when it comes to cup competitions.

The 47-year-old guided Wolves to the FA Cup semi-final in April 2019, where he probably should’ve made it to the final having led Watford 2-0 at Wembley.

Nevertheless, Nuno has also impressed in Europe.

The Portuguese coach led Wolves to the Europa League quarter-final in 2020, where they unfortunately lost to Sevilla.

Clearly, Nuno knows his way around a knockout competition, which should excite Tottenham fans.

He has Harry Kane at his disposal, and the backline has been reinforced well with Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero signed over the summer.

Forget the RIBA award. Spurs can secure some real silverware this term.
