Spurs set to ditch Champions League flop after exit

I hate to tell you this mate.

But Spurs are out of the Champions League.

While Tottenham fans probably knew that already that – they’ll be waking up to some pretty good news this morning.

Because they’re set to ditch one of the Champions League flops.

That’s right. The north London club are weighing up the possibility of returning to White Hart Lane for their Europa League clashes.

Meaning – they won’t have to play at Wembley.

Which is good considering Mauricio Pochettinho’s side managed to accumulate a mighty 0 points at England’s HQ.

According to the Guardian, the Premier League club are exploring the possibility of moving back to N15 should they finished third in Group E (and qualifying for the Europa League).

Midfielder Moussa Sissoko has backed those claims, saying..

“I think it would be good for us to play at home in the Europa League, and by home, I mean White Hart Lane,” Sissoko said.

“Going home would make it easier for us. We know the stadium and it would be better for us.”

The only thing standing in their way?


And that’s where the problems lie.

Because WHL (yes, we’re calling it that) is unlikely to meet UEFA’s capacity requirements, due to building work, they may be forced to stay in north west London.

But there is a glimmer of hope.

The Guardian go on to report a UEFA spokesperson told them…

“Upon a specific request by a club, Uefa would look into it.”

So keep those finger’s crossed.

good luck
