Dele wins another admirer

Posted on 21 January 2016  - 01:10

Hot on the heels of putting pen to paper on a new five-year contract at the Club, Dele Alli was the focus of BT Sport’s pre-match build-up for the televised game with Sunderland last Saturday.


The 19-year-old England midfielder sat down with a notable former member of the Three Lions engine room, Owen Hargreaves, at Hotspur Way to preview the match.

Hargreaves, who represented his country at two World Cups and a European Championships, heaped praise on Dele straight away, opening the interview with: “Congratulations for making the transition into the player you have already - you deserve a lot of credit.”

Dele’s response is typically grounded: “The transition to the Premier League has not been easy but the setup we have here, with the other players and staff, has made it easier to come and play my football.”
