Former Tottenham man Christian Ziege has stated that “it was always great” playing at White Hart Lane ahead of the Manchester United match on Sunday.

Spurs are set to play their final game at their old stadium as they prepare to move into new surroundings in the coming seasons.

At first, they will play all Premier League home matches at Wembley before moving into their new stadium in time for the 2018/19 season.

They will want to sign off at the Lane with all three points as Jose Mourinho’s Champions League chasing side will be looking to spoil the party.

“It was always a great time at White Hart Lane,” Ziege wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Fantastic fans and atmosphere.”

During his time in England, Ziege represented Liverpool, Spurs and Middlesbrough in a career that also saw him play for German giants Bayern Munich.

Nonetheless, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten run on home soil when United visit at the weekend.

Before they play the Manchester club, their opponents will play a Europa League semi-final clash against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Therefore, to Spurs’ advantage, Mourinho’s injury-hit squad, could be weakened for the Sunday encounter at the Lane.

The north London club go into the match having suffered a costly 1-0 defeat away at West Ham, which has all but ended their title hopes.

Leaders Chelsea need to record three points against West Brom on Friday to confirm that they are champions of England.
