‘Out of my comfort zone’ – Why Poch’s continuous desire for change may deform Spurs

The long wait is gradually coming to an end. Tottenham Hotspur is set to move to the new White Hart Lane in March.  Spurs faithful were put on the edge of their seats regarding the proposed opening.  

With the initial launch billed for September 15 against Liverpool, it suffered a major setback of almost six months.  However, there’s been some level optimism as the new launch approaches.  

It is still unclear whether the Lilywhites will finish the campaign at the modern North London 60,000-capacity edifice, especially with Mauricio Pochettino’s team enjoying an incredible run in Wembley.  The Argentinean, though, believes a move to the new stadium will favour the club.

“Why? Because I’m a positive person. I believe that I can find a better place to play, a better situation, better things,” as quoted by Football London.  “If you are a person who is scared to go outside your comfort zone, it’s difficult to find something different.

For me, I am a person who always tries to cross the line, to put myself in a difficult situation, to be out of my comfort zone.  That is why I am here. If not, you know if you are scared to cross this line, it’s so difficult to improve, to learn.

For me, always think that in a place that I don’t know is going to be the happiness is going to be the positive things or better than today.” 

That decision, however, could ultimately deform Spurs’ remarkable improvement for sometime as the players will need to adapt to a new atmosphere while on the pitch.

Tottenham currently sits third in the Premier League table and are part of the Champions League last 16 parties. The team struggled to find their feet in Wembley, a scourge that could follow them to their new home. 

But the Lilywhites and fans alike have adjusted to the national stadium. Any move away will certainly halt their progress and bury the momentum.
