Tottenham flop will be like having a new signing next season claims pundit
By Bruce Grove -

Dele Alli will want to put the 2020/2021 season behind him as he looks to rebuild his career at Tottenham.

The Englishman was out of the first-team picture at the club under Jose Mourinho and started just two league games for the Portuguese manager.

He played more when Ryan Mason became the club’s manager, but he will write off the last campaign as a huge disappointment.

Despite appearing to be victimised by Mourinho last season, the Englishman said earlier in the summer that he doesn’t blame his former boss for his dip in form (Daily Mail).

The former MK Dons man is now expected to be back in the reckoning under Nuno Espirito Santo in the upcoming season.

Despite seeing a few minutes of play, he scored a stunning goal against Wolfsberger in the Europa League which has now earned a nomination for the UEFA Goal of the Season as reported on the Tottenham website.

Former Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny believes that goal shows his quality and backs him to return to top form next season.

“He can 100 per cent turn things around,” he told Football Insider.

“He’s come out and said that he doesn’t blame Mourinho for not being involved a lot last season.

“He needs to sort himself out but he’s acknowledged that. It might his preparation or his love for football that’s the issue.

“But if he thinks he can get that sorted out, which I’m sure he can, and he can get back to where he was three or four years ago then these flashes and the goals show he’s still got it.

“We all know what he can do. It’s just a matter of getting it back. He can be like a new signing for them.

“I’m sure it’ll be near the top of Nuno’s to-do list to get him back playing well and enjoying the game.”

Too worried about his image. Championship and cup winning teams dont have players like Dele anywhere near their first team.

“Flop” pretty strong for a guy that score over 50 goal from a deeper position. Make the England team on a regular until the wheels begin to come off. But flop, I do not see it.

Not fast enough for a winger. Not strong enough or good enough finisher to be a striker. Not good enough passer to be a CAM. Not defensive enough to be a CDM. Add it all up and you’ve got a squad player.

Maybe they could have started by actually reinstated him as a Central attacking Mid where he was when he started. Do not seem likely, but he got to release the ball much earlier at the 10 spot.
Question: why do players think if they have a good season Real Madrid or Barca should come get them. Eg Cristian Romero wants Spurs, but waiting to hear from Spain.

The strange case of Dele Ali, the player that was and isn’t any more. Where’s he gone?

He was bang average against a League 2 side in his ‘new role’. Get him out.

Dele has got to show more that he did when picked by Mason to prove he has redeemed himself,and it must be consistent over a long period of time.

When he starts to influence games and scores regularly then I will hold up my hand.That talent must still be there somewhere.
