‘It was great to visit my ex-Club @SpursOfficial,’ Vega wrote on Twitter.

‘But I still prefer the old stadium White Hart Lane much better atmosphere, it felt cold and disconnected.’

Built on the site of their former ground, Spurs moved into their new 62,580 stadium in 2019, following 118 years at White Hart lane.

In addition to hosting the club’s home games, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’s state-of-the art facilities has made it a go-to venue for sports and entertainment.

Since opening in 2019, the stadium has hosted Anthony Joshua’s first clash with Oleksandr Usyk, games from the NFL International Series and concerts from the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

Vega spent three seasons in North London after joining the club for a fee of £3.75million in 1997.

The Swiss international was part of George Graham’s side that won the League cup in 1997, making a crucial tackle with his side 1-0 up in the final against Leicester City to deny the Foxes an equaliser.

Since hanging up his boots the 51-year-old has embarked on a career in business and currently serves as a board adviser for Dubai-based AI software company Creed&Bear.
