22 Y/O Tottenham Hotspur Midfielder Loving Life Under Pochettino: Good News For Spurs?

Tottenham Hotspur have managed to tie Dele Alli up on a new, long-term contract which will come as welcome news for anyone associated with the North London club. Spurs have done well in recent weeks after initially falling off the pace in both domestic and European competitions. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are currently sitting in the 4th spot of the Premier League table following another impressive league win away at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

One of the stars behind their recent success under Pochettino has been Dele Alli. The English midfielder has managed to establish himself as a first-team regular for Spurs over the past few years, so it is no wonder that the North London giants have wasted no time in securing his long-term future at the club. In a recent interview, the 22-year-old expressed his happiness after penning a new deal and said

“Would like to say a big thank you to everyone at the club – chairman, manager, all my team-mates and the fans for their constant support.

“I’ve loved my time at Spurs so far and I’m very excited to see what the future holds!”

The Milton Keynes born talent has featured in 9 matches for Spurs this season, scoring two goals across all competitions.

What Does The English Talent Add To Pochettino’s Team?

Alli has developed a knack for scoring and creating goals on a consistent basis and has a brilliant understanding while linking up with Harry Kane in the attacking third. The English international can dribble with the ball out of tight areas and is quite useful while operating in the number 10 role just outside the opposition penalty box. The Tottenham attacker has been plagued with injuries in this campaign, but he always overcame them and came out on the other side with flying colours.

Alli Is Happy At Spurs: Great News For Pochettino?

When fit, the 22-year-old is one of the first players in Pochettino’s team sheet which goes on to show how well he has done for Spurs in recent campaigns. It’s high time for the North London outfit to win some major silverware under their Argentine manager and Alli can surely be a player who can help them achieve that feat.

Thus, Alli’s recent comments will be encouraging for any Tottenham supporter as they hope to see their beloved club hang on to their prized assets in the coming years.
