Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has urged Dele Alli to put his struggles this season behind him and help the club's race for silverware. The midfielder was ready to quit the north London club. However, a recent revival has seen the England man start two of the club’s last three games.
Lloris told a report in the Daily Mirror: “As a teammate, he’s always been professional. He put his disappointment on the side and from day one in the second part of the season after the transfer market closed, he switched on and he started to step by step improve his fitness and get as much confidence as he can.
“I don’t want to talk about January. It’s his personal situation and I don’t want to talk on behalf of the club, I’m not the right person to do it. Now he’s coming back and that’s good for the team and obviously, the best for the season is ahead of us.
“The confidence is coming back into the team so that’s one point that’s very important. And obviously when you see important players coming back today, like Dele and Gareth Bale again. For different reasons they could not play at the level they wanted to help the team [previously]. But it was the case at Fulham [that they did] and that’s good for the team and for the club.”
