White Hart Lane redevelopment begins hours after last Tottenham Hotspur match

Spurs played their final game at White Hart Lane yesterday in a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

And Son, who believes it is a great accomplishment for Spurs to finish as runners-up, explained that he really relished playing at White Hart Lane.

Hundreds of fans poured onto the pitch at the end of Sunday's game, won by a goal from home-grown star Harry Kane, before being ushered back into their seats for the ceremony. "It's hard to describe", said Pochettino.

"I think I am very lucky guy because to share the history of such a club in that special moment is so lucky to be here", he told reporters after the match. "I am so happy", Pochettino said.

"We were simply trying to find balance, even with some players not in their best position, trying to organise a team to give minutes to people who need minutes and protecting people who needed to be protected". Fans ran onto the pitch as Tottenham played their last game before the temporary move to Wembley next season.

White Hart Lane was a special venue for all Spurs fans which was depicted with the outcry of emotion all throughout yesterday's swan song. When I have 14, 15 players I can't do it.

As you well know, Sunday's game against Manchester United wasn't just Tottenham's chance to secure second place in the league once and for all, but it was also the club's last game at White Hart Lane. "We all wanted to win the game so badly on our last game here".

"I wanted to try and get that victor as well, and for it to happen is just a dream come true. Third, second and hopefully next season we'll be number one".

19 - Spurs have gone unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964/65 (W17 D2 L0 this season). It's emotional now, I'm sure when we all get home it will start to sink in a little.

Stuck behind one of White Hart Lane's inconveniently-placed structure beams, his amusingly bad view is typical of England's older stadiums and is exactly the sort of thing the club's new 61,000 seater will sort out. When you look at our points tally compared to last season, obviously we're disappointed losing out on the title but we are growing.
