“An amazing training ground, amazing stadium, and I don’t say that lightly, we’re talking amazing – I can say it’s unbelievable – amazing infrastructure, financially sound and you’ve got to take something from that – Spurs will be around for a long time.
“Yes there’s no trophies but hopefully with that base, over the next five to ten years we can see that develop into a really strong squad.”
