Paul Robinson has revealed that he believes that Dele Alli needs a change of environment after a terrible season.
The Englishman remains one of the best players at Tottenham at the moment, but Jose Mourinho froze him out of the team at the start of this campaign.
The current AS Roma boss had been unimpressed by Alli’s performances and kept him out of his team for much of his time at the helm.
The Englishman gained some relevance when Ryan Mason replaced Mourinho temporarily, but Robinson reckons that leaving the club for good, will probably be the best thing that Alli can do for himself now.
The club’s new manager will probably have to be appointed before they start selling or buying new players and Alli’s future will be at the top of what he needs to sort out.
Robinson says Dele is young and needs a change of scenery to get him back in top shape.
“Dele needs a fresh start,” he told Football Insider, “I think he needs a new challenge.
“He is still so young and people forget his age. He has been at Spurs a long time now and without a doubt it will have been the toughest year of his career. I think he needs new voices and new surroundings.
“A fresh start will bring out the best in him I think. We saw flashes of brilliance from him this season. I think he is a phenomenal talent, I really do.
“Every time he was given an opportunity this year he looked sharp. When he played in the cup sometimes he was the best player on the pitch. I cannot understand why Dele wasn’t used more to be honest.
