Dele Alli: Is He Really That Good?

Dele Alli: Is He Really That Good?

When he's in the mood Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli can play some amazing and scintillating football. But, when the mood takes him in the opposite direction the 21-year-old can strop as much as a teenage girl, high on hormones.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino once said...

'When you compare him with all the players in the world, I think he is the best in his age. In his form, assists, everything. For me Dele Alli, at his age, is the best - that's it.'

Quite a statement made by Poch, don't you think?

Numerous players of his calibre are as good as the next in trying to con the referee.


With 22 senior England caps under his belt Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate will undoubtedly pick Dele to play two international friendlies against Holland tomorrow evening and Italy in a couple of days' time.

When he is in the mood Dele is almost unplayable. He can be brilliant but does have a nasty streak which he still has to learn to control.
