Expert backs Tottenham as fans complain over club's World Cup plan - 'people are annoyed'
Tottenham are right to stay in the UK during the World Cup break rather than head abroad to a warm-weather training camp.
That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Tottenham will be staying at Hotspur Way during the World Cup while several other Premier League sides will jet off to the USA or the Middle East for training camps.
According to Wenham, some Spurs fans are complaining about the team staying in the UK.
However, he insists working at Hotspur Way will give Spurs an advantage once the domestic season starts up again in December.
“I have seen some people complaining that Tottenham are not off to Dubai for a winter training camp,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“We are the only historic top-six side who aren’t doing that. Look, we didn’t build Hotspur Way to not use it.
“We have everything we could possibly need on-site. I don’t see the point in going away for warm weather training and then coming back to an English December.
“I think playing at Hotspur Way is the sensible decision when you look at the infrastructure there. We will get our usual friends to rock up and play some behind-closed-doors friendlies and that is how we will build our fitness.
“Hotspur Way is purpose-built and it’s ours. It just makes so much sense to stay and work there rather than heading abroad.
“I don’t understand why people are annoyed by that.”
Tottenham’s first game back after the World Cup break is against Brentford on 26 December.
Spurs are currently fourth in the Premier League.
