“Now we have to keep together and, after these three weeks, I hope we can be fresh and positive and energetic on the pitch. We want to be in the top four and we want to play Champions League with this amazing stadium. I’m confident with my team. We can do it. We just need to believe in ourselves.”

The South Korean also discussed the imminent move to the new stadium, revealing that he misses White Hart Lane, but is looking forward to having a new permanent home.

He added: “I feel a bit different because I still remember White Hart Lane – when you come in, you’re still thinking about it. When I was young, I watched White Hart Lane. It’s in my head. They’ve changed the building and so for me, crazy things. The Tottenham of White Hart Lane was a special thing but now we have to make history with the new stadium.

“Of course, I miss White Hart Lane but the new stadium is amazing – the pitch, the view, the stands; it’s just unbelievable. Finally we are coming back home and it’s great to be here again with the fans. They were tired, as well, with Wembley. 

"Of course, Wembley is a very nice stadium but it’s not actually our home. I think the fans are very happy, like us. The most important thing now is our performances in the new stadium.”
