As England boss Gareth Southgate says, it’s always difficult to know what the benchmark of being described as ‘World Class’ is.
Performing consistently and winning medals and trophies is a keen indicator. Another is being an unstoppable force of nature who cannot stop scoring goals a la Harry Kane. According to Southgate (and anyone else with eyes in their head) Dele isn’t world class yet.
Dele Alli fails to tick any of those boxes. And of course this wretched clip features the boy doing some effeminate variant of paper rock scissors whilst supposedly training with England.
This has nothing to do with football and is the sort of thing one would more commonly expect to see young girls doing either side of a skipping rope in a school playground.
Dele Alli isn’t vaguely World Class, this season he’s not even come close to being Tottenham class. Maybe he needs to focus his attention on playing football? Just a thought.
