Dele Alli has lavished praise on former manager Mauricio Pochettino, insisting that he was lucky to play under the Argentine at Tottenham.
The 24-year-old, who saw a move to PSG fall through last month, has fallen out of favour under Pochettino’s replacement Jose Mourinho.
Dele, as reported by The Sun, said: “I was very lucky to have a manager like Pochettino – he was an unbelievable guy and very experienced.
“He would pull me in if I was doing dumb stuff and speak with me.
“Not like a dad – but that sort of vibe.”
The comments could be seen as a thinly-veiled dig at Mourinho, with the boss has previously criticised the midfielder this season.
