“Drifting aimlessly”: Tottenham star urged to leave club in the summer after Burnley snub

Dele Alli urged to leave Tottenham after Burnley starting XI snub

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, former Tottenham Hotspur striker Peter Crouch has urged Dele Alli to move on from the club in the summer after being snubbed against Burnley.

Alli, who has been reduced to a peripheral figure under Jose Mourinho at the club this term, showed signs of getting back to his best last week. The England international put in a brilliant display in the midweek game against Wolfsberger, scoring a sensational overhead kick goal before setting up two more goals.

On the back of that display, it was widely expected that Alli would be given a chance to build momentum with a starting berth against Burnley in the Premier League game on Sunday.

However, that did not materialise as Mourinho opted to start with Lucas Moura as the No. 10. Instead, the 24-year-old Alli had to make do with a cameo from the bench, during which he looked decent, setting up a chance for Son Heung-min.

But, Crouch, after Alli being snubbed again by Mourinho, has called on the Englishman to move on from Tottenham in the summer.

“I was at Tottenham last Wednesday and I thought Alli was superb. He had a glint in his eyes, he looked hungry and a class above. So I could understand why he would have been frustrated yesterday. He hasn’t featured in nine of Tottenham’s Premier League squads this season and that is too much absence for a player of his class.

The exit's that way Dele - Mourinho forcing Alli out?

Mourinho has hardly afforded game time to Alli

“He shouldn’t be left to rot, he shouldn’t have a career that is just drifting aimlessly. We aren’t privy to what is happening behind closed doors and we have to respect why Jose Mourinho is making these calls. But I expect Dele would have been totally deflated at being on the bench against Burnley.”

Alli not starting could very well be a case of Jose managing his game-time considering that the midfielder only recently returned from an injury. It will be interesting to see whether the ex-MK Dons man gets the nod against Fulham later this week.
