Report Alleges That Workers At Spurs Stadium Were On Alcohol And Cocaine
It's not going well for Spurs on the pitch right now and away from actually playing football they really should be at their new stadium by now. Instead there's reports of foul play at the stadium.
On Tuesday Spurs had the best of the second half in their opening Champions League game of the season but they had a late collapse against Inter, taking them to three defeats in a row after losses to Watford and Liverpool in the league.
All this has led to questions about Harry Kane's form, their lack of transfers in the summer and Mauricio Pochettino's management, all despite the fact it's only three games.
However the north London club have bigger problems. They were supposed to have moved into their new stadium by now but that's been delayed and new reports suggest that it could be next year or even next season when they do move out of Wembley.
To make matters even worse there's a report that suggests some workers were under the influence of drugs and alcohol on the building site.
According to a report by Construction News a source told them, "I've not worked on a site like that in a long, long time. There were people off their heads, drinking cans first thing in the morning before going on to site and snorting coke in the toilets."

A spokesperson for Mace Construction, who are working on the site, said, "The health, safety and wellbeing of everybody is, and has always been, a core value at Mace and any suggestion that our rigorous standards around best practice or drugs and alcohol had been broken would be taken extremely seriously.
"We carry out regular random drugs and alcohol testing to ensure that our rules are enforced throughout our supply chain. Any concerns about specific health and safety risks should be flagged to the management team on site."
The report by Construction News outlined all the problems with the delay of the stadium with sources explaining that on two occasions electricians have had to rip out all their work because of a lack of communication and believing that the air conditioning had already been installed when it hadn't.
Further issues to do with a lack of equipment, or the wrong equipment, as well as corner cutting before the delay have also been alleged.
