Dele Alli posts defiant social media message amid Tottenham exit rumours – Mirror Online

Dele Alli has taken to social media to share a four-word message as speculation continues to link him with a move away from Tottenham.

The 24-year-old midfielder has endured a frustrating season so far, and has made just three starts in all competitions.

He has regularly been left of the squad altogether by Jose Mourinho, and has not been involved in Spurs’ last three games in a row.

Alli’s last performance came against Antwerp in the Europa League on October 29, when he was substituted at half-time, and it seems as though his time at Spurs may be coming to an end.

However, Tottenham supporters may be encouraged by the player’s activity on his Instagram account on Tuesday evening.

Alli posted a picture of himself exercising on his own in his house, and included the caption: “Make improvements, not excuses.”

While the meaning could be interpreted in many different ways, it may be a hint that Alli is acknowledging that he is to blame for being left out of the team rather than Mourinho, and perhaps he is now putting the extra effort in to get back to his best.

The post was liked by teammates such as Sergio Reguilon, and it is clear that those close to Alli are right behind him as he attempts to rediscover his form.

While once Alli would have been linking up with the England squad ahead up the upcoming international break, his poor recent showings means he has yet again been left out by manager Gareth Southgate.

He is clearly still working hard, however, and is seemingly desperate to turn his faltering career around and get back in Mourinho’s good books.

Alli was linked with a loan move to PSG over the summer, but ultimately nothing materialised, and it will be intriguing to see if any other teams come in for him in the January transfer window.
