Harry Kane: The atmosphere is better at this ground than at White Hart Lane
By Danny Wright
Harry Kane has admitted that the Tottenham fans generate a better atmosphere at Wembley than at White Hart Lane.
Spurs take on Gent at the England national stadium on Thursday night as they look to turn over a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of their round of 32 Europa League tie with Gent.
In a press conference ahead of the game, which was reported by ESPN, the Spurs striker said that he believes that his side will use the atmosphere to their advantage despite losing two of their three Champions League group games at Wembley.
Tottenham will play their final matches at White Hart Lane this season as the construction of their new stadium will begin to take place where the current ground lies.
They will play all of their home games under the Wembley arch next season after playing their European ties there this season as more intense construction work has took place during the week.

“White Hart Lane is obviously a lot smaller and the crowd are on top of you. We have a great atmosphere there, but at Wembley it is even better,” Kane said to ESPN.
“Even though the fans are not as close to the pitch, having 90,000 people there is incredible.
“I think it’s a full house again [against Gent], so hopefully we can use it to our advantage.”
