Premier league news Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp clash in Sky Sports studio over Dele Alli Last spor news
PremierLeague-News.Com - The duo of former Liverpool stars disagreed over the reasons behind Dele Alli's worst season in a spurs shirt and who might be to blame
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Dele Alli has featured 13 times for Tottenham this season in the Premier League, yet to register a goal - a far cry from the kind of form that saw him collect the PFA Young Player of the Year award on two occasions in a Spurs shirt. Dele has spent much of this season on the bench after falling out of favour under former manager Jose Mourinho, though he has displayed glimpses of the Dele of old under interim manager Ryan Mason. The midfielder played a starring role in Spurs' 2-0 home victory over Wolves, striking the woodwork just before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg secured the three points after Harry Kane's first half strike.

Redknapp laid the blame mainly at the door of Mourinho, claiming: "Since he's (Mourinho) has left, look at the player he has turned into, Jose seems to want to fall out with a lot of his players - he is a quality player, he's 25 years of age. "If you can't get him into the team, and we have also seen with Gareth Bale, since he has been playing since Jose has gone and you think 'well, this is a manager that has won everything - he can't keep falling out with his players.

. "He gets one in three, why would you not want to use that Graeme?" Souness shifted the conversation to centre around Alli's responsibility, claiming: "From the outside looking in, it's a classic case of too much too soon, too much stardom, too much of everything too soon and he's dropped into an armchair.

"Please god for him, for Tottenham's sake I hope he gets back to what he was." Redknapp agreed: "He has got to look at himself, he's got tremendous ability, but he's got to come back next season and, no disrespect ram it down the likes of Graeme's throat and say 'I can do this.'" Tottenham's Champions League hopes look all but dead and buried (though not mathematically impossible), but they remain in the hunt for Europa League qualification.
