Dele Alli has made an admission on the woes of last season, and and has promised to make a good impact next season under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
The 25-year-old spent the majority of the 2020/21 season on the fringes of the first team set-up, as he found his opportunities limited under former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.
In an interview with Goal, the former MK Dons player was keen to own up to the mistakes of last season.
“The only person I blame is myself,” Alli admitted. “I should be performing at a level where it is difficult to not put me in the team or not play me. I don’t blame anyone but myself.
“Working with [Jose] Mourinho was a great experience and one I learned a lot from.”
“He [Nuno] has done a great job at Wolves,” Alli added. “I am looking forward to speaking to him and working with him. He is a great manager and it is exciting times.
“I want to make this year one of the best I have had. A lot of people have said I need to find the form I was in a few years ago. For me, I don’t even want to get to that, I want to go past that and reach my full potential to be the best player I can be.
“It has been a tough few years but I have been working hard and analysing what I need to do to get better. I have been training a lot on most days of my holiday. I didn’t feel I needed much rest, so it is just training the whole way through.
“Everyone is looking for that extra few per cent, so you have to keep up. I am feeling good and the best I have felt in a long time.”
