Spurs have already added Netherlands global striker Vincent Janssen and Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama to their ranks ahead of the upcoming campaign, with highly-rated Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou also reportedly set to finalise a move to White Hart Lane.
"But it will be a nice experience to play there and hopefully we will do well because how we play, I think a big pitch will suit our game".
However, Spurs boss Pochettino has now revealed that the 29-year-old is nearer a quicker than expected return. That timeframe put his chances of featuring in the Premier League opener at Everton on 13 August in jeopardy, although Mauricio Pochettino has now revealed that his recovery is progressing nicely.
"Jan is back in London and training well now, he's very close to coming back", he told the club's official website. The clubs' big-name stars such as Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, and Danny Rose were all left at home to get a few more days rest after a grueling summer that included participation in the Euro 2016 competition in France.
"The atmosphere of course will be different, but we know our fans will probably be even louder when we are Wembley, which will hopefully make us play even better". And then young players like CCV [Carter-Vickers] and Ball.
Christian Eriksen was absent from that first friendly due to a virus that struck shortly after arrival and made it "impossible" for him to play any part.
"We'll see when we arrive on Monday [if he will be ready for Everton]".
