Paul Robinson is amazed that Tottenham are considering expanding the capacity of their stadium just 12 months after it officially opened.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football insider Correspondent Dylan Childs said the recent news “seems absolutely absurd” and insisted that this “should have been the starting plan”.
Sky Sports reported this week that Spurs had been authorized by Haringey’s council to increase their stadium capacity to more than 500 seats.
It will see Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’s capacity drop from 62,303 to 62,850 – the pitch remains the second largest in the Premier League behind Manchester United.
The club are looking to do the work required as fans still cannot attend football games amid the coronavirus pandemic.
When requested by Football insider for his thoughts on plans to increase seating capacity, Robinson said:
“I’m amazed they didn’t build it as big as they originally wanted it to be.
“It just sounds crazy. The stadium has only been open for 12 months and they are already looking to expand it. It should have been in the plan initially. “
Spurs moved into their new, state-of-the-art £ 1billion stadium last season after moving from their inaugural White Hart Lane home in May 2017.
The London club played their home games at Wembley National Stadium between 2017 and 2019.
