09 Apr Tottenham vs Man Town:’We have missed our house’ – Son Heung-min dismisses Kevin De Bruyne asserts over new arena
Spurs host European football for the very first time in their brand new innovative venue with an all-English quarter-final
Tottenham striker Son Heung-min considers the air in the club’s new stadium will assist them in their Champions League clash with Manchester City – regardless of what Kevin De Bruyne has stated.
Belgium global De Bruyne disregarded the importance of the match being Spurs’ first European game in their new state-of-the-art venue before Tuesday’s all-English quarter-final showdown.

“Everybody talks about the scene like it is something special. Everyone has a scene. Everyone has fans. They will be up for this.
“They will probably be a bit more enthused but in the long run it is a scene with fans. Should they visit Wembley with 80,000 or there together with 62,000, it is likely to be exactly the same. It is going to be a hard match but I believe we will be all perfect.”
However, Son sees it and states Spurs will be fired up by playing their new house place, called the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, instead of being temporary tenants at Wembley.
“Obviously [the atmosphere can help],” he explained in the club pre-match media conference. “Perhaps the City players do not realise because they have consistently played in the home, but we have played away from home for nearly two decades. We have missed our home a whole lot.
“If you play you away feel pressure too but enjoying at home we ought to delight in the moment.
“City really are a powerful side for example us and we ought to appreciate it and have fun from a significant facet in our new arena. It’ll be amazing.”
