Dele Alli has a serious amount of work ahead of him if he is to find his A Game and start delivering consistency on the pitch. To be publicly branded as “lazy” twice by a coach of José Mourinho’s stature is a total humiliation. Worse yet, if Dele Alli was really ‘upset and confused’ right now, by José’s decisions then the boy has serious issues, as the Amazon documentary was recorded months ago.
We all watched Mourinho tell Dele in the kindest, most fatherly way imaginable, that time was fleeting and that he needed to get his act together while youth was on his side. Watch the video of their chat here, and focus on Dele’s body language.
Paris Saint Germain are supposedly interested in Dele Alli’s fallen angel according to The Telegraph, however, I am given to understand from a source close to the club that a Premier League side have made tentative enquiry about the possibility of a loan deal for the remainder of this season.
It was Newcastle United incidentally, that were closest to capturing Dele before he signed for Tottenham in 2015, according to The Chronical Live, not Liverpool, as some have suggested.
