Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Dele Alli, has taken a veiled swipe at supervisor, Jose Mourinho, and hailing his predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino.
Mourinho has apparently frozen Alli out of his first-team plans, with the England worldwide making simply 5 appearances for Spurs within the Premier League to this point this season.
Alli, whose future at Tottenham is unclear, noticed a transfer to reunite with Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain fall by way of the final January switch window.
Talking forward of Tottenham’s Europa League conflict with Wolfsberger on Thursday night time, Alli mentioned he was fortunate to play below Pochettino at Tottenham, including that the Argentine is aware of the right way to handle him.
“I used to be very fortunate to have a supervisor like Pochettino – he was an unbelievable man and really skilled,” Alli was quoted by The Solar as saying.
“He would pull me in if I used to be doing dumb stuff and communicate with me.
“Not like a dad – however that kind of vibe.”
Alli, 24, joined Tottenham from MK Dons in 2015.
In the meantime, talking final month, Mourinho outwardly challenged Alli to combat for his future, claiming that ‘sad’ gamers fall into two classes.
