Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken about Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium predicament. While he understands their problems he feels sharing the Emirates is an unrealistic solution.
Due to problems acquiring the land on which to build the new stadium, Spurs officials have conceded that the completion of the project will not be in 2017 as originally thought. It appears a temporary ground share is the only way to adhere to Premier League rules.
The most likely destination appears to be Milton Keynes but fans would prefer a move to Wembley. Meanwhile, most worryingly for fans, rumours have emerged that the two bitter rivals could share a home for a season. Wenger, though, feels any move would be blocked by fans of both sides.
Talking in his morning press conference, the French manager said;
“Geographically it’s a solution but you understand as well that it’s a very sensitive subject. I don’t think that will happen. Yes, maybe [it having happened before after the First World War]. But at the moment I must say I have bigger problems to sort out than that. We have not been questioned about it.”
While the 64-year-old didn’t seem particularly keen on uniting the two rivals, the fans would be sure to do a little more than voice opinions if the rumours were ever firmed up.
