High praise indeed!

Posted on 21 January 2016  - 01:15

You may have seen that we had a very special guest at Hotspur Way last week – none other than World Cup, European Championship and Champions League winning Barcelona legend, Carles Puyol.


A friend of Mauricio Pochettino, Puyol visited our world-class training centre alongside another former Spain international, Ivan De La Pena, and was impressed by what he saw.

One of the game’s most celebrated defenders of recent years, there is not a lot Puyol wouldn’t have seen during his career, but even he was blown away by Hotspur Way.

He said: “It is fantastic here, you can feel what football is and you feel like playing football again. I think the Tottenham players are lucky to have such great facilities. If I were still playing, I would spend the whole day enjoying them.”
