Hoddle, Ardiles help Spurs say goodbye to Lane

Tottenham v Manchester United Rooney goal

Tottenham v Manchester United Rooney goal

Tottenham Hotspur played their last game at their old stadium on Sunday, beating Manchester United 2-1 thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy handed over the keys to White Hart Lane on Monday after Spurs defeated Manchester United in the final game at the ground.

"What a way to finish".

"We've a very bright future, a great squad and a team that's hungry to win, to learn and to get better". [I'd thought before the game that] to score the winning goal or something like that would be special, and for it to happen is just fantastic.

"We finished obviously third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first".

Wayne Rooney scored United's consolation, the last ever goal at the ground, but Spurs claimed the points to finish their home campaign unbeaten in the league.

"The crowd have always been good, even in the Champions League when we played at Wembley the crowd were fantastic".

"I am a very lucky guy because to share the history of such a club in that special moment is so lucky".

For United fans, they will be disappointed with the team's display on the day.

Talent is there along with confidence - and the White Hart Lane send-off gave the players a glimpse of the party that lies in wait if they win a trophy.

"Because of my respect for them (Tottenham), I didn't rest more people", said Mourinho, whose side visit Southampton on Wednesday.

TOTTENHAM said goodbye to White Hart Lane yesterday - with some of their legendary former players making it onto the pitch.

Walker came on as Trippier got injured after a heavy fall in the second half, with the replacement looking much more adept at dealing with the French attacker's threat.

"For us it is more important to win titles than to finish top four", said Mourinho, who has already collected the League Cup this season.

"But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position to try and fight for the title".

"Though today is tinged with sadness, we are all excited about the new stadium and the journey ahead of us", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.
