Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Jurgen Klinsmann is hoping the future is bright for his former club in their ‘amazing’ new stadium.

The 54-year-old, who had two spells with Spurs in 1994-95 and 1997-98, played in the Spurs Legends match against Inter Forever.

The former Germany and Bayern Munich manager played the first-half for Spurs before playing the second-half for one of his other former clubs Inter Milan.

But he is now hoping the opening of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will help bring the Lilywhites faithful more success in the coming seasons.

“The stadium is amazing, simply amazing. I hope the fans will enjoy it as much as I did,” the former USA manager said.
