Victor Wanyama head over heels for Tottenham’s ‘dream’ new stadium

Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has admitted playing at the club’s new stadium feels like a “dream”.

The north London club faced huge delays to the opening of their state-of-the-art ground, but finally got to play at the upgraded Whute Hart Lane earlier this month.

It’s since become something of a fortress for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, with the team yet to lose or conceded a goal at the stadium.

Wanyama has played a huge part in that, taking his place in the starting XI due to injury but starring alongside Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks in the midfield.


And the Kenya international has reflected on his first few appearances and his side’s impressive performances.

“I think the new stadium is great and the fans make it even better with how they cheer the team on,” he told their official website.

“Our new home, it’s among the best I’ve ever seen in the world. The noise you can hear, it gives you a lift. Whenever anything happens on the pitch, whether you’re going to attack or defend, you can feel the support from the fans.

“To go from [the streets of Kenya] to a world class stadium like this is just unbelievable. It’s everyone’s dream.

“I could never have seen that coming back then, but now I have this opportunity to play in this stadium so I have to take it and give my best.”
