Sir Geoff Hurst thinks playing at Wembley is now tiresome for

first_imgEngland’s 1966 Word Cup hero Sir Geoff Hurst believes the “privilege” of playing at Wembley no longer exists for Tottenham.Due to White Hart Lane being redeveloped, Spurs have hosted all of their home games at Wembley in all competitions since 2017.Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had several delays this season in their attempt to play at their old ground once more, despite the fact that it should have been ready for them to return to at the start of the current campaign.Star playmaker Christian Eriksen has recently made it clear that he cannot wait to get out of Wembley once and for all.And Hurst accepts that the thrill players usually get from playing at Wembley probably no longer exists for the Spurs team.“You could say that playing at Wembley so often has taken away the privilege for Tottenham and their supporters,” Hurst told Football London.“It’s a fantastic stadium, befitting for big occasions such as England matches, cup semi-finals and finals. But playing there every week has become tiresome for the team.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Their players have made noises about looking forward to leaving and playing in their own ground, and you can see why as the atmosphere and turnout isn’t what it could and should be for the national stadium.Although the former West Ham striker cannot see why there should be any issues over Spurs playing at the stadium.“Should they have been allowed to have played there? I don’t see why not,” added Hurst.“It’s important that the FA help English teams when they can, and Spurs have been flying the flag for the country when playing in the Champions League, so it made sense to help them while the stadium was being built.”Now 77 years old, Hurst is renown in England for his exploits on the international stage which famously saw him score a hat-trick against West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final.Overall, Hurst scored 24 times in 49 appearances for the Three Lions and entered the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004.last_img read more
