Dele Alli refuses to blame Jose Mourinho for his struggles at Tottenham
According to Mirror, Dele Alli has refused to blame Jose Mourinho for his struggles at Tottenham last season. Alli was dropped for quite a period of time during Mourinho’s reign at the club. However, he was eventually brought back to the fold but Mourinho was eventually sacked.
Tottenham relieved Jose Mourinho of his managerial duties following the 2-2 draw against Everton back in April. The result had left Tottenham in seventh place, staring at the possibility of missing out on a top-four finish, which they eventually did miss out on.
Dele Alli was one name that suffered a huge dip in form under Mourinho. Despite starting well under him, Alli quickly slipped to the fringes and spent a lot of time out of the side. It was only during the latter stages of the last season that Alli was reintroduced to the side.
Now, as Alli is set to enter a new phase of his career at Spurs under Nuno Espirito Santo, he has opened up on his time and struggles under Mourinho.
“The only person I blame is myself. I should be performing at a level where it is difficult to not put me in the team or not play me. I don’t blame anyone but myself. Working with Mourinho was a great experience and one I learned a lot from.”
