The end of the season will be melancholy for Tottenham. Finalist of the last Champions League, José Mourinho’s team has no more chances of qualifying for the next Champions. Today he would even be out of the Europa League, even with last weekend’s victory over Leicester. This scenario, also of uncertainty about the presence of the public, projects the coming year as even more complicated, given the financial obligations with the new stadium.
In the statement last Sunday, the president Daniel Levy made clear his dissatisfaction with the return on the investment made for the season. Tottenham spent an excess of £ 130 million to bring in new players and receive José Mourinho’s coaching staff in November.
But Tottenham’s big problem is 51 meters high and has a capacity for 62,303 fans. The new stadium is the largest of London’s teams and second among clubs in the country. Opened in April last year, it has an estimated cost of up to £ 1 billion for the entire project. But the absence of an audience due to the coronavirus, whether for games or shows in the arena, impacted this payment. According to “The Sun”, Tottenham have yet to pay £ 852 million for financing the construction of the stadium.
