Pedro Neto makes claim about Spurs' stadium

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has received further plaudits, with Pedro Neto telling Wolves’ official website that Spurs’ ground is his favourite in the Premier League away from Molineux.

Spurs appear to have set the standard since moving into their new home in 2019.

They now boast the second-largest ground in the Premier League. It is a significant achievement given that all of the top seven biggest stadiums all have a capacity of over 50,000.

It looks to be the kind of facility that should help Spurs further establish themselves as one of the heavyweights in England – despite their recent struggles.

And now they have received praise from one Premier League rival. Neto was asked to name his favourite away ground in the league.

And the Portuguese suggested that he has particularly enjoyed his trips to North London.

“The stadium was amazing, like in American Football. It was brand new and I’d never seen a stadium like it. It’s different, almost from the future,” he told Wolves’ official website, when asked to name his favourite away ground.

Fond memories of Spurs’ stadium for Neto

Tottenham actually took the spoils on Wolves’ most recent trip to the capital. However, Neto – who earns £50,000-a-week – was not involved in the 2-0 defeat.

His only appearance at the ground came the previous year. He came off the bench for the final 16 minutes as Wolves came from behind to win 3-2.

His next opportunity to play there in the league will come next February. And it will be fascinating to see what shape both clubs are in by that stage.

Crucial summer for both Wolves and Tottenham

When they meet in August, both clubs are likely to look quite different.

Of course, Wolves have appointed a new manager in Bruno Lage.

Meanwhile, Spurs continue the hunt for theirs. Several names have been linked, with Steven Gerrard potentially the latest in the frame.

A change was needed at Molineux as Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure started to stagnate after some amazing moments.

Tottenham certainly need to go in a new direction after Jose Mourinho’s spell in charge.

The foundations are clearly there to put this past year behind them. But their struggles to find a new boss are obviously doing them no favours.
