Exclusive: Pundit expects Dele Alli to thrive under Nuno this season

Former professional footballer Dean Windass is looking forward to watching Dele Alli play for Tottenham again this season.

Alli wasn’t a part of Tottenham’s side much in the first half of last season, featuring for just 74 minutes in the Premier League prior to the new year. The attacking midfielder suffered an injury that saw him miss four league matches at the end of January and beginning of February, but upon his return featured more regularly under Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason, who took caretaker charge following Mourinho’s departure.

Under new Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo, Alli has featured throughout pre-season and got on the scoresheet against both Colchester United and MK Dons, before being named in the starting XI as Spurs beat Man City on the opening day of the Premier League season.

And Windass is looking forward to watching Alli play for Tottenham again this season and says that the midfielder will want Harry Kane to stay, exclusively telling Football FanCast: “I think it would be a great signing again for Tottenham, as you say he’s got back fit and you go away and prove people wrong, you go and prove Jose Mourinho wrong.

“He’ll want Harry Kane to stay obviously because them two was like glue weren’t they together really. So, if Harry Kane stays and Dele is just in behind then that could work for sure. So, no it will be interesting and I’m looking forward to watching him play.”
