‘He’s finished’ – Some Spurs fans fear midfielder has played his last game for the club

Some Spurs fans on social media fear that Dele Alli’s time at the club is up after the midfielder failed to set the world alight against Royal Antwerp.

Dele was handed his first start by Jose Mourinho since Tottenham’s Europa League qualification match against Shkendija and he was one of four players withdrawn at half-time in Belgium after an extremely poor first-half display by the away side yesterday evening.

Mourinho did not hold back in his criticism after his side fell to their second defeat of the season. He said in his post-match press conference that the media should stop asking why he does not pick some players as they now had the answer (Football.London).

Some fans thought that the Tottenham boss’ words were very harsh since the 24-year-old was not the only one who was below par yesterday.

However, others insisted that the England international cannot keep getting opportunities if he continues producing poor displays.

While there was disagreement on whether Dele deserved to be criticised in public, the only thing fans seemed to agree on was that the midfielder has likely played his last game for the club.

I can see why Mourinho was as harsh as he was after the game as he is trying to instil a mentality among the players of wanting to win every single game. He was clearly not happy with the players’ attitude and the lack of intensity, particularly in the first half.

However, it is harsh to single Dele out as I do not think he was anywhere near our worst player in the first 45 minutes. Unfortunately, with the January transfer window just two months away, I cannot see a way back for him.
