Harry Winks: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium "feels like home already".

Midfielder Harry Winks says the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium "feels like home already". The Lilywhites moved into their new stadium from White Hart Lane in April 2019. And England international Winks told Sky Sports News how pleased he is with Spurs’ new ground that has “a nice comfy area to relax”. "The changing rooms are massive! It's huge, it's got everything in there," Winks said. "A nice big physio room, a nutritionist room, a big gym for us to do our pre-game stuff, a kit room, the manager's room, a nice dining suite where we can have our food, and a lounge area where we can relax before an evening game as well. "It's a nice big stadium and a nice comfy area to relax, especially for a big game. It just feels like our home. We've only been there a year, but it feels like our home already." Winks also spoke about his former boss Maurico Pochettino, who gave him the confidence to play in the Premier League. The 24-year-old said: "[Pochettino] was massive for me - he gave me my debut and he brought me through.

"It was always going to be tough to do that, especially at a club like Tottenham, but he kept faith in me. He wouldn't let me leave or go on loan, believed in me, and gave me my big opportunity. "He'd always be there to give me advice, call me into his office and show you what you did right and wrong, and tried to improve everybody. "For me, at a young age to get brought into the first team and feel like you had that backing of the manager and the coaches was massive."
