Graham Roberts hopes that Sky Sports treat Tottenham’s final game at White Hart Lane with respect on Sunday.
The former Spurs player doesn’t want to see their usual Arsenal pundits in the studio as Mauricio Pochettino’s men welcome Manchester United in what will be the last match to be staged at The Lane.
Gunners legend Thierry Henry will perhaps be one of the usual Sky pundits that Roberts doesn’t want to see on Sunday in what will be a historic occasion for Tottenham as he calls for the organisation to think wisely about their choice.
“I hope Sky Sports have respect for Spurs on Sunday and not have all ex Gooners on TV at The Lane’s send off. Players who know Spurs history please,” said the 57-year-old on his personal Twitter account on Friday.

White Hart Lane is due to be demolished when the season ends to pave way for Spurs’ new state-of-the-art stadium.
The 36,000-seater ground has been open since 1899 and the final game to be played there is bound to be an emotional time for the Spurs fans.
Tottenham know that they can go into the clash with their hopes of a maiden Premier League title ended.
League leaders Chelsea can secure the championship with a win at West Brom on Friday night which would mean that Pochettino’s side would be playing to guarantee their runners-up status.
Man United will be playing to keep alive their hopes of a top four finish although Jose Mourinho’s men earned a spot in the Europa League final on Thursday, which means they could qualify for the Champions League final with a win over Ajax later this month.
