Mauricio Pochettino felt privileged to witness the final game at White Hart Lane as Tottenham gave their home the flawless send-off with a 2-1 win over Manchester United.

"It was special out there after the final match, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something".

Mauricio Pochettino hailed Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 victory over Manchester United as the ideal send-off to White Hart Lane. By the time they are playing in the new home, they'll hope to have delivered Tottenham's first league title since 1961.

"After 2-0 we were brought some balance to the team because we put players in the right positions, the team imp a lot, we had 2-1, could have had 2-2". I wouldn't want to keep fighting relegation at the end of every season.

"Tottenham were a team at the maximum of their potential, with all players, with all the motivation to win the last match at home", he said.

The club have wasted absolutely no time in tearing down the stadium after yesterday's emotional farewell ceremony.

Club chairman, Daniel Levy, has been working on the project of a new stadium dating back a number of years and his plans are finally coming to fruition. Of course there's going to be rumours over the summer, but I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season. "For me it will always be the most special day, the last day of White Hart Lane".

Mace, the main contractor, now takes on full responsibility for White Hart Lane and will commence the 12-week deconstruction of the stadium, starting with the demolition of the North Stand before moving towards the South, also including the demolition of the Spurs Megastore.

While Tottenham rejoiced, it was a sobering day for United who are now likely to finish sixth in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge - a place below where they finished under Louis van Gaal last season. It has been an unbelievable stadium for us, especially this season having gone unbeaten.

"We've secured second spot with two games left and we can go out and enjoy it now".

Pochettino believes that finishing second and the new stadium coming will give them the platform to push on even further. he said: "We believe that when the new stadium opens it's doors it will help the cub to achieve the last level".
