Dele Alli will this evening play the biggest football match of his career when he takes to the field in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
The Spurs midfielder is flying his former girlfriend, Ruby Mae to Madrid to watch the European showpiece at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium by claiming that she is his ‘lucky charm’ (The Sun).
Dele split from the lingerie model in January after two and a half years together after allegedly claiming that he wanted to be single and play the field which saw him linked with Love Island contestant in February when they exchanged numbers on a night out (The Sun).
He has charted a private jet to the Spanish capital for his friends and family but has also asked the 23-year-old to make the trip and watch him try to help Spurs to a first ever Champions League title.
Spurs fans have a lot to thank the England international for after he provided a beautiful assist deep into injury time against Ajax for Lucas Moura to score the winner.
A source said to The Sun: “Dele’s totally focussed on the game but wanted to have Ruby there in the stadium watching. Tonight is the biggest game of his life and Dele wants to make Ruby proud by going out and helping lead the team to a win over Liverpool.
“He’s chartered a private jet to fly her out with his friends and family and has said she’s his lucky charm. Off the pitch, he’s been trying to win Ruby back and is keen to start up their relationship. For now though, the match is his main focus and what he’s totally focussed on winning.”
The source added: “Ruby and Dele were great together and their friends are hoping they can work things out. Ruby will always support Dele and is proud of how far him and the team have come.”
