Tottenham boss Pochettino thrilled to see 'unbelievable' new stadium in action

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium- Tottenham Hotspur's new ground eclipses north London rivals' Emirates Stadium– it was worth the long wait

The Spurs under-18 side host Southampton today (3pm) with around 30,000 fans expected to turn out.

And an emotional Pochettino feels chairman Daniel Levy deserves credit for pushing the project forward.

Mauricio Pochettino revealed he was "nearly crying" due to the emotion of being present at the long-awaited opening of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

"We all now need to feel the ambition of the club at every level".

Around the "cashless" but costly Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, 28,987 Spurs fans who came up lucky in a ballot swooned over the luxury feel of a spaceship moored where the old White Hart Lane used to be.

Tottenham's new stadium will be the first in England to operate a cashless policy for all purchases on match days.

"We are almost crying because our dream became true and we have to say thank you, first of all, to [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy because in 2001, when he started to believe in that dream".

Although Tottenham have progressed to the quarter final of the Champions League in that time, it is clear that their lack of signings on the pitch has seen them lose ground to the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool when it comes to being contenders for the top flight.

Spurs fans relished their opportunity to finally see their new digs in person, many expressing their deep bond with the old White Hart Lane but also their admiration and astonishment for the attractive new ground.

"It's going to be wonderful and a massive impact for the team, for the players and the club to have the possibility to finish this season [at the stadium]", added Pochettino.

The London club provisionally moved all their home matches to Wembley Stadium in 2016, to pave way for renovation of the White Hart Lane.

The 17-year-old was elated with the feeling of scoring in the first ever game played out at Spurs' new stadium and admitted it was an incredible feeling which is hard to describe at the same time.

Mauricio Pochettino's squad went into the worldwide break sitting third in the Premier League table and having progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they will face Manchester City.

Harvey White doubled the Tottenham lead from the penalty spot before half-time and, after Kornelius Hansen pulled one back for Southampton, Dilan Markanday sealed a 3-1 victory on a historic day for Spurs.
