Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to comments made by Dele Alli following the end of their Premier League season.
A 4-2 win away at Leicester City yesterday ensured that Spurs will be playing Europa Conference League football next year, but it’s really scant consolation when you consider that they were at the top of the table at one point. The 25-year-old was used very sparingly in their league campaign, especially in the early days under Jose Mourinho.
And he reflected upon what he called a ‘difficult season’ on his Instagram account, posting a message in which he reflected on the campaign and said that he was ‘more determined than ever to come back fitter and stronger’.
Certainly a positive outlook on his end, but that positivity didn’t seem to stretch to the Tottenham Hotspur fans when the message was relayed to them via @thespursweb & @TheSpursExpress on Twitter where they turned on their player, with some refusing to believe that they’re likely to see any change from him, even going as far as saying they don’t want to see him at the club any more:
“I’ll believe it when I see it.”
“Cool story. Now leave”
“Not interested in this. We needed him to step up in the last two seasons and he’s been a ghost. I’m happy he’s learned from the experience but he needs to revive his career elsewhere.”
“Thanks for the memories but it’s time to go”
“All words. He needs to show us. Or go.”
“I think for the best for his career and our project moving forward, he should move. It’s the end of an era here.”
Should Tottenham cash in on Dele Alli?
Looks as if there’s a lot of people out there that he’ll need to prove wrong.
