Wayne Rooney: 'We could have done better against Tottenham Hotspur'

16 Mai 2017

Tottenham signed out of White Hart Lane, and Hull left the Premier League.

Home-grown hero Harry Kane scored Tottenham Hotspur's last goal at White Hart Lane as they bade farewell to their home with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

After the final whistle, fans poured on to the pitch to say their goodbyes.

"To be honest I think in the Premier League lately the results are not the best - we lost at Arsenal ending that unbeatable run we drew at home to Swansea". When you look at our points tally compared to last season, obviously we're disappointed losing out on the title but we are growing.

United nearly equalised 12 minutes later but Rooney's header from a corner went just over the bar. Despite the honour of scoring the final goal at the stadium - which first hosted top-flight football in 1909 against the same opponents - falling to Wayne Rooney as United nearly rescued a point with a late salvo, Pochettino paid tribute to the club's supporters for providing the impetus for their memorable final season at the Lane.

Going into this game, United's record in away games against the rest of the top six this season read: five played, no wins, no goals. It was ideal. the preparation of the game, the game - we played well, got three points - and then at the end the ceremony was flawless to share with the people, the staff, the fans, was flawless. "We had to do it".

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. Since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 after delivering United's last league title, United's net transfer spending has been around million pounds ($450 million).

Stormzy , real name Michael Omari, followed in the footsteps of Nicki Minaj who has also recently donated to fans' education fees. But as well as retweeting it, he went one step further - coughing up the hugely generous donation to Fiona's campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur went through a rough patch following the departure of Gareth Bale in 2013 and the number of signings made from his transfer fee struggled to fill the hole he left.

Spurs only confirmed their switch to Wembley at the end of last month and the club have been keen to emphasise they are only taking on a new stadium in 2018-19, rather than moving to a different location.

"It's an unbelievable stadium and we just have to make sure we feel comfortable there".

Here are seven deadly stats from the last-ever game at White Hart Lane. It would have been unwarranted, however, and game number 2533 at White Hart Lane had its happy ending.

Eriksen was also involved when Spurs doubled their lead three minutes into the second half, this time whipping a free-kick into the six-yard area at just the height and speed that goalkeepers dread.

Rooney's 71st-minute strike briefly punctured the festivities amid a downpour, but the sun returned and Tottenham closed out the final minutes in the stadium of its best campaign since 1962-63 before a parade of club greats on the field.

However, while the move may well be the future of the club, this afternoon was all about the past. Today's encounter is expected to be a highly emotional affair with Tottenham vacating the stadium that has been their home for 118 years and Mauricio Pochettino says his side are "focused".
