Ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas believes that Spurs star Dele Alli will have to look for regular football at a new club as Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho continues to overlook him for selection as far as Premier League football is concerned. Jermaine Jenas talked about Dele Alli and Tottenham Hotspur while he was doing his punditry job on BBC Sport.
Jermaine Jenas admitted that Dele Alli has dropped off in form over the last 18 months and that he’ll have to move to a new team to resurrect his ailing football career.According to him, his Spurs exit is inevitable as things stand.
Dele Alli is now a regular fixture for the Tottenham Hotspur B team when he should be a key player for the first team alongside the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and the newly resigned Gareth Bale. Bale was a former teammate of Jermaine Jenas and he left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid in 2013 for a reported fee of £85.3m which was a record transfer as at then.
The Welshman, Bale, has now rejoined his former side from Real Madrid with a permanent deal imminent. During negotiations for Bale, Dele Alli was discussed as part of the transfer but the Spanish La Liga outfit opted against signing him.
Without Dele Alli in the Spurs team, the North London club has shot to the Premier League summit. They secured top spot on the league standings courtesy the impressive win over Manchester City on Saturday. Jose Mourinho and his players produced a very good performance as Spurs beat Manchester City 2-0 at home. It was the second successive win for Jose Mourinho and his players over Manchester City led by Pep Guardiola who’s regarded by many as the best manager in the world. He has also managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
