Dele Alli - Tottenham Hotspur

Mourinho tired of Alli questions: ‘Players have to prove they deserve to play’

Jose Mourinho is fed up with the questions regarding the future of Dele Alli. The England midfielder has missed the last two match squads at Tottenham Hotspur and there have been many rumours that Spurs want to offload the attacking midfielder. Mourinho is tired of the constant questions on Alli’s future and has tried to end the speculations by stating he expects Alli to stay with Tottenham for the 2020-21 campaign.

“I believe he will stay. I can even say that I’m convinced that he will be. We all know since Dele arrived from MK Dons he had ups and downs, he had fabulous periods and he also had other periods where he disappeared from top-level performances. And with me it’s no different than before. He’s had moments where he was so good, but he also had moments where he was not so good,” Mourinho said.

“I think this lack of consistency, it’s normal that when you are in great form you play because you deserve it and your production is big for the team, but when you are not in a good moment you don’t play – and it’s as simple as that. The players have to prove on the pitch with their performances; they have to prove how good they are in that specific moment.”
