Pundit reckons struggling star is on his last chance to remain at Spurs


Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor, says Dele Alli is probably on his last chance to remain a Tottenham player.

The midfielder has been on a steady decline since 2019 and has been out of favour under the last two Tottenham managers.

However, Antonio Conte will give everyone a new start and that means Alli would get the chance to impress him and earn a recall to the Tottenham starting XI.

Agbonlahor sees no reason the former MK Dons man should not get back to form and warns that he might not get another chance if he cannot take this one.

“When I look at the Spurs squad I still see problems there,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.

“It’s alright changing the manager and the tactics but you’re still going to need players who want to run around.

“Ashley Young said that at Inter the players had to run, training was hard.

“We’ve seen Dele Alli can run, so as long as these players that might come back into the fold put the yards in then they will play under Conte.

“He will give everyone a chance. Whenever a new manager comes in, if you’ve got no previous with them, it’s a clean slate for everybody.

“This might be last chance saloon for him [Dele] now at Spurs. There have been a few managers that haven’t played him.

“This is a chance for him to get back into the team and show what he can do. There’s no reason why he can’t do that under Conte.”
