‘Sound jealous’: Some Tottenham fans slate Premier League ace’s comments

Tottenham Hotspur supporters have taken to Twitter tearing into Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne after he suggested that Spurs’ new stadium will make no ‘difference’ ahead of their Champions League meeting tonight.

As reported by Sky Sports, the Belgium international insisted he’s no fan of the north London outfit’s new stadium, and claimed that ‘everybody’ talks about the stadium like it’s something very ‘special’.

He said:

“I don’t care about the stadium.

“I care about the team we play.

“Everybody talks about the stadium like it’s something special. Everybody has a stadium, everybody has supporters.

“They’ll be up for it, they’ll probably be a little bit more excited, but in the end it’s a stadium with supporters. I don’t think there will be any difference.

“If they go to Wembley with 80,000 or are there with 62,000, it’s going to be the same. It’ll be a tough game but I think we’ll be all right.”

Tottenham opened their stadium last Wednesday with a win as they beat Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace 2-0 in the Premier League.

Spurs will be looking to maintain that momentum when they play host to the Citizens tonight in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

De Bruyne’s comments, however, didn’t sit well with Spurs fans, with some of them suggesting that the Tottenham fans need to prove the Belgian wrong by making as much noise as possible.

Here is a selection of Tottenham fans on Twitter reacting to De Bruyne’s comments:

Tottenham and Manchester City meeting tomorrow night will be first of three meetings between the two clubs in the next 11 days. After tomorrow night, Spurs will travel back to Etihad for the return leg which takes place next Wednesday.

This will then be followed up by their Premier League encounter at the Etihad Stadium, with Spurs aiming to maintain their spot inside the top-four, whilst City are hoping to record back-to-back Premier League titles.
