According to reports in the Manchester Evening News, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli told Manchester United’s Ashley Young to ‘retire with a zimmer frame’ during the two clubs’ Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday, and Spurs fans have had their say on their star’s comments.
The England duo were involved in a spat in the 30th minute of the 1-0 win for the Red Devils after Young had claimed he had been caught by an elbow from Serge Aurier.
Alli went head-to-head with the 32-year-old but even after things had died down a little, the verbals between the two continued with the former MK Dons saying his piece, before Young replied by telling the 21-year-old to “let me know when you win the Prem”.
Tottenham supporters were quick to give their reaction to the quotes via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some said “he needs to grow up”, others said “good on him”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Really? He needs to grow up a bit and stop taking every tackle personally. With Kane injured he and Son were all we had..
