In his post-match interview with the Evening Standard, Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has made scathing comment about new Spurs pitch.
When asked about his thoughts about the new stadium and its contribution towards Crystal Palace loss, the former England boss didn’t seem to be too pleased.
“I don’t know if the stadium was a factor. It was always going to be a tough game,” Hodgson said.
“The pitch was outstanding but maybe a bit slippery and I think one or two of our players, once-or-twice, found that a bit harder to deal with than maybe they expected.”
It is a point to be noted that Spurs were brilliant during the game and would have got the three points nevertheless.
