Harry Redknapp has stated that it is ‘such a shame’ no-one can get a tune out of Dele Alli at Tottenham after another poor showing, as he told talkSPORT (12/01/22 at 7:35 am), informs the HITC.
The former Tottenham boss stated that it’s ‘not happening’ for the Englishman in north London, as he also thinks Tanguy Ndombele’s time is ‘coming to an end’ under Antonio Conte.
Both players were hauled off at the weekend, as Spurs had to come from behind to beat League One side, Morecambe, in the FA Cup.
Alli’s poor performance was probably overshadowed by the fact that Ndombele was booed by the home fans as he walked off the pitch.
That didn’t help matters and, understandably so, it was the main talking point after the game, as Harry Kane and Lucas Moura came off the bench to help their side progress to the next round.
Before Conte stepped foot into Hotspur Way, there were question marks over the likes of Alli and Ndombele.
A few months into the Italian’s reign, nothing seems to have changed with either Alli or Ndombele, who may well be heading for the exit door during the January transfer window.
Redknapp spoke about both players and how he used to be a ‘big fan’ of Alli, who’s time is now probably at an end at the club.
“People like Dele Alli, I just find it amazing,” said Redknapp. “I was such a fan of his.
“They keep changing managers. But no-one can get a tune out of him anymore. I don’t know what has happened to the boy. It’s such a shame.
“You think Conte will get him going. Mourinho will get him going. Somebody will get him going.
“But it’s not happening for him. I can’t see him playing tonight. He got pulled off on Saturday as well, didn’t he?
“Ndombele looks like he is coming to an end of his time there as well, isn’t he?”
There have been rumours for a number of weeks that both Alli and Ndombele could leave Spurs during the January transfer window.
For Alli, the big-money pockets of Newcastle are seemingly keen to sign him up this month to help them in their relegation battle.
Whilst it was suggested, even before the FA Cup game at the weekend, that senior Spurs figures are looking for Ndombele to leave and the player is happy to depart.
Either way, it would be quite the shock if either player is preparing for Tottenham’s all-important second leg clash against Chelsea in the League Cup on Wednesday night.
