'He has got to go': Trevor Sinclair urges Pochettino signing to leave Spurs
Spurs midfielder Dele Alli has struggled for quite a while now.
Once a key player for Tottenham, the 25-year-old has found himself on the fringes of the starting XI for some time.
Last season, Alli seriously struggled for game time under former Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.
Indeed, he was reportedly close to leaving in January amid links with Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Pochettino signed Alli from MK Dons back in February 2015 and the two had a great working relationship.
Earlier this term, Nuno Espirito Santo reinstated Alli back to the starting XI, and he did well initially.
However, this didn’t last, and Alli soon found himself warming the bench once again, with the odd cameo.
New manager Antonio Conte has given Alli minutes off the bench in the league, but ended up hauling him off after starting him against Mura.
Sinclair is saddened by the England international’s recent struggles, and believes a change of scenery would serve him well.
“It’s disappointing with what’s happening with Dele Alli at the moment,” he told talkSPORT.
“Four, five years ago, I think any club in the world would have taken him. I think he has gone away from what made him.
“He was a box-to-box midfielder that could outrun most of the midfielders.”
Sinclair then added: “I think he has got to go.
“I just think with what has gone on at Tottenham, obviously the fans’ relationship, everything that has gone on before, I think he needs a new challenge.
“He needs to get out of his comfort zone and go somewhere else.”
