Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have recently reacted to a comment made by Jose Mourinho on Dele Alli’s performance against Marine.
On Sunday, Spurs cruised past non-league Marine in the third round of the FA Cup as they sealed a 5-0 victory at the Marine Travel Arena (per BBC).
During the clash, Alli played 64 minutes for the north London club and managed to bag an assist for his side as he provided for Carlos Vinicius’ opener (per WhoScored).
The 64 minutes which the midfielder played against Marine was only marginally less than the 75 minutes of action which he has seen over the entire Premier League season so far.
Speaking on the Englishman’s performance, his manager claimed: “I like very much.”
These comments were relayed to Spurs fans on Twitter by The Spurs Express and they had lots of them talking.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about Jose Mourinho’s comments on Dele Alli?
“My week ruined”
“Trying to get his price tag up”
During December, Alli was linked with a January move to Paris Saint-Germain following their interest in the summer and his lack of game time for Spurs this season (per BBC).
It was claimed at the time that he was ‘hugely frustrated‘ with his situation at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Should Jose Mourinho be playing Dele Alli more in the league?
No, he's not good enough
Yes, he's a class player
“He needs to get his head back in the game . Look in the mirror @dele_official”
“We are in dreamland”
“Let’s hope this is the turning point for him.”
So far this season, Alli has made just four appearances for the north London club in the top flight, in which he has neither scored nor assisted a goal (per WhoScored).
Furthermore, his performances have been poor as he has earned a weak 6.11/10 average rating, making him the worst-performing player for Spurs in the league.
“could be a revival?”
“I don’t think we was watching the same game as us then”
As can be seen in these responses from Spurs fans, there was a mixed reaction from them regarding Mourinho’s comments on Alli’s performance against Marine.
