Manchester City forward Kevin De Bruyne has claimed that Tottenham's new stadium is nothing special and will not give Spurs any advantage in Tuesday's night, April 9, Champions League tie.
Last week, Tottenham's £1 billion stadium was officially opened in which Spurs defeated visiting Crystal Palace in a Premier League game.

Belgian football star De Bruyne who is expected to play alongside his Man City teammates on Tuesday, April 9, has now reacted to the hype been given to the new stadium.
"I don’t care about the stadium. 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,'' De Bruyne explained.
