Kevin De Bruyne claims Tottenham’s new stadium will not be a significant factor in Manchester City’s Champions League clash against Spurs.
The London club have been energised by completing their long-awaited move into their new home in the past week.
Spurs are hoping the feelgood factor continues as they host quadruple-chasing City in the quarter-finals of the European competition on Tuesday but De Bruyne says it makes no difference.
“I don’t care about the stadium,” said the Belgian playmaker. “I care about the team we play.
“Everybody talks about the stadium like it’s something special. Everybody has a stadium, everybody has supporters.
“They’ll be up for it, they’ll probably be a little bit more excited, but in the end it’s a stadium with supporters. I don’t think there will be any difference.
“If they go to Wembley with 80,000 or are there with 62,000, it’s going to be the same. It’ll be a tough game but I think we’ll be all right.”
