Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has warned Tottenham that playing their home games at Wembley could be a psychological disadvantage because it won’t feel like home.
“For sure it’s not the same when you don’t play in your stadium. It’s different. But if you want to have another good step to improve the club, you must have this type of situation,” Conte said.
“Moving to a new stadium was a key moment for Juventus. I think there is a big difference in the new stadium because the delle Alpi (the former stadium) in which I played a lot, wasn’t a real stadium.
“It was very cold and you don’t feel the passion of the fans because the stand was very far from the pitch.
“When we started to play in Juventus Stadium, the situation changed totally, above all for the players. The players felt the fans behind them. It’s great.
“Stamford Bridge is similar to Juventus Stadium and is a really good stadium, but for sure the new stadium will be fantastic for the club, for the coach, for the players.”
