West Ham vice-chairperson Karren Brady believes that moving to the Olympic Stadium gives the club bragging rights over Tottenham.
Both West Ham and Spurs were vying to become tenants of the stadium, built for the London Olympics in 2012. West Ham eventually won the battle to move in, and will take occupancy in time for next season.
Brady believes that that means West Ham now have the advantage over Spurs, whatever happens during Sunday’s game between the two teams.
‘Many Hammers fans regard Spurs as their rival and as they waged a campaign to wrest the Olympic Stadium rights from us, I didn’t regard them as friends,” Brady wrote in her column in The Sun.
“Boris Johnson said we have been ‘an integral part of delivering a massive social and economic legacy from the Olympic and Paralympic Games in East London’.
“Of course we want to beat Spurs on Sunday but the London Mayor’s praise is worthier bragging rights.”
It’s all very well winning matches, but praise from Boris Johnson – that’s the real quiz.
