Murat Sancak reveals frustration as Adana Demirspor miss out on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli

According to the Turkish Media via Milliyet (h/t Football.London), Adana Demirspor president Murat Sancak spoke about the failed deal for Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli

The 25-year-old was supposedly on the verge of agreeing for a loan deal with the Turkish side Adana Demirspor but the move fell through as Frank Lampard lured Alli to Everton. The former MK Dons player had a promising start to his career at Spurs winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award two times.

Only the likes of Ryan Giggs, Robbie Fowler, and Wayne Rooney have been able to achieve the same feat since the inception of the prestigious award. His career has somewhat stalled at N-17, to say the least, and the chaotic situation with respect to the managerial situation at Tottenham hasn’t done him any good.

Sancak thought that he was going to get the English professional footballer but his frustration was pretty evident when the Toffees managed to snatch him from under their noses.

In a statement to the Turkish Media ( h/t Football.London), the Demirspor president showcased his irritation regarding how the whole situation transpired. If anything it was Frank Lampard who proved to be the thorn in Demirspor’s side.

“We agreed with Spurs or Dele Alli. They would loan him. Even his older brother came to Turkey,” he said to the Turkish media. The transfer was almost complete. Just then when Lampard went to Everton, he messed it for us.”

What lies ahead for Dele Alli?

Alli had taken world football by storm when he first made the move to Tottenham Hotspur. He was on course to be a world-beater but things didn’t exactly pan out the way he would have liked. Limited game time and different systems may have also become an obstacle for him in recent times.

Frank Lampard has played at an elite level and was a decorated player with Chelsea during his playing days. His managerial stint with the Blues may not have been as good but his ability to bring out the best in youngsters like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount was one of his highlights.

At 25, Alli still has a considerable amount of time to prove himself. The move to the Merseyside team may turn out to be just the kind of change that he needed, but only time will tell if that stands true.

Lampard was one of the legends who played in a similar position and the 25-year-old midfielder could help hone his skills under the tutelage of the former Chelsea player. The Toffees are stuck in a precarious position and have struggled to put up points on the board.

The 25-year-old English midfielder gave us some genuine moments of happiness at the nascent stage of his career with Spurs. He feels as though this deal could be a great way for Alli to reinvigorate his career which otherwise seems to have plateaued for a while now.

The former Chelsea manager has spoken highly of the English international and hopefully, football fans around the world will get to see a glimpse of the young Dele Alli who could decimate his opponents for fun.
