​Tottenham fullback Rose slams Wembley atmosphere

Tottenham defender Danny Rose is not happy with the atmosphere at Wembley.

Spurs have been playing their home games at the stadium, as their new ground is still not ready.

But Rose is not happy with the atmosphere at the ground, but he does not blame his club's supporters.

Spurs overcame Southampton at Wembley 3-1 in midweek in the Premier League.

"It's just not nice anymore," said Rose to reporters after the game.

"It's lost its... I don't feel it's an honour to play at Wembley. We're all itching to get in the new stadium and, hopefully, it's not too much longer.

"The atmosphere is a bit flat. I obviously sympathise with the fans, travelling further to come to Wembley.

"We're disappointed [the new stadium] has taken longer than expected, but we know everybody is putting in the hours to make sure it's as good as possible. It's not that much longer now so, hopefully, over the next couple of months we're going to be in there.

"We all sympathise with the fans. We just have to stick together now."
