Jamie Carragher tells Tottenham fans to get excited about this player
Jamie Carragher says the best is yet to come from Tottenham youngster Dele Alli...
Jamie Carragher believes that the best is yet to come from Dele Alli and is expecting big things from the England international at Tottenham.
Alli earned plenty of new admirers last season after he broke into the Tottenham side under Mauricio Pochettino last term.
The England international helped Tottenham challenge Leicester City for the Premier League title for much of the campaign before they ended up falling short and finishing third behind Arsenal and the Foxes.
However, Alli’s performances did not go unnoticed as he was voted as the PFA young player of the year.
And Carragher has revealed that he is a huge admirer of the Tottenham youngster and is expecting big things from him in the coming months at Spurs.
Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, Carragher said: “You have to remind yourself from time to time that Alli has yet to turn 21.
“He plays with such confidence and looks so comfortable in the Premier League that you would have him down for being a good few years older.
“It was only right that he was named PFA Young Player of the Year in April for his role in the Tottenham title challenge and though he did not have the impact on Euro 2016 he would have liked, Alli has finished 2016 strongly. His star is firmly ascending.”
Alli will be hoping to feature for Tottenham when the Lilywhites return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Southampton.
