Spurs beats Man United in stadium finale to secure 2nd spot

Posted May 17, 2017

"It was a very emotional game and emotional ceremony".

David Ginola, who played for Tottenham between 1997-2000, said the heavens were shedding a tear as heavy rain marked the last game at White Hart Lane.

"Second position is fantastic for us".

Arsenal's late surge had put Juergen Klopp's side under enormous pressure but they responded in style and will definitely finish in the top-four if they beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season next Sunday.

"There were no injuries and one less match to play because in this moment the Premier League for us is just matches we didn't want to play".

Pochettino's side will play at Wembley next season before returning to their new 61,559-seater stadium, which is already taking shape beside the Lane.

"It was special out there after the final match, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something". "We've got the team, we've got the belief, so next season hopefully it's our year".

"We've secured second spot with two games left and we can go out and enjoy it now".

While Tottenham rejoiced, it was a sobering day for United who are now likely to finish sixth in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge - a place below where they finished under Louis van Gaal last season.

"It is true that we will play in the new stadium and we will take the last step to win something".

Rooney's 71st-minute strike briefly punctured the festivities amid a downpour, but the sun returned and Tottenham closed out the final minutes in the stadium of its best campaign since 1962-63 before a parade of club greats on the field.

"Of course, there are going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season".

"After that we controlled the game and took our chances".

"Everything is heading in the right direction, but we've got to go out there and do it".

Levy added: "Farewell White Hart Lane - you were the home we all loved coming to".

"Before moving, there's a season to manage at Wembley, which won't be straightforward, but Wembley is an important place in English football, and we'll do our best to get our bearings to continue this invincibility at home".
