Jose Mourinho upset with Tottenham ace after League Cup display

Jose Mourinho-Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has now accused Dele Alli of creating problems for his own team on the pitch.

The 24-year-old midfielder played against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup during the midweek and his performance seems to have left Jose Mourinho unimpressed.

Mourinho said: “Yes, for me a player that plays in that position is a player that has to link and create and not to create problems for his own team.

“In that situation, an objective counter-attack would probably end with a goal, and it ended with a counter-attack behind our defenders.

 “We were unbalanced because when you are in possession you have full-backs out wide and another midfielder in a different line and they caught us in a counter-attack and they transformed the result of the game that was totally in our hands, so yes I am upset.”

The midfielder was substituted during the match against Stoke City and he was seen booting the water bottles in frustration as he made his way into the stands.

Dele Alli was reasonably impressive in the attack and he could have easily scored if not for some goalkeeping heroics from Andy Lonergan.

However, the midfielder was at fault for Stoke City’s equalizer on the 53rd minute. The Tottenham midfielder gave the ball away which led to Stoke City’s counterattack.

It seems Dele Alli’ situation at Tottenham has worsened with time and his relationship with Jose Mourinho is probably beyond repair now.

It will be interesting to see the midfielder decides to move on in search of regular football when the transfer window reopens next month.

He has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Everton recently.

With Mauricio Pochettino expected to take over at the French club, Dele Alli’ move to Paris Saint-Germain might just be on the cards.

Pochettino was the one who brought out the best in the 24-year-old midfielder during his time as the Tottenham manager and he could help the England international resurrect his career in France.
