Following Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final, Tottenham Hotspur attacker Dele Alli gave an honest interview where he insisted that his club could not continue to fall short on the big stage.
Alli had sent Tottenham ahead against Manchester United at Wembley, but the Red Devils hit back with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera to secure their spot in the final.
Alli, who is believed to be on £50,000 a week at Tottenham, also took to Twitter on Monday to reveal that he was ‘still hurting from the weekend’.
There were a number of opposition supporters that took the chance to poke fun at the England international as Spurs once again failed at the semi-final stage.
However, the Tottenham fans rallied behind the 22-year-old, who has managed to rub a number of people up the wrong way with certain antics this season.
It will be very interesting to see what type of transfer window Tottenham have this summer, but there is no question that the club’s supporters will remain on-side despite the disappointment of Saturday’s clash in the English capital.
A selection of the Twitter reaction to Alli’s tweet can be seen below:

I think we've all been hurting, but we could see how much it meant to you too, and we appreciated the honest interview after the game. Much better than a typical churned out, media trained number.
