West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on 25th April, that Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli will be an asset for England for the next 10 years.
Alli was named the PFA’s Young Player of the Year yesterday, which reflects just how impressive a first season in the Premier League he has enjoyed.
The 20-year-old only moved to Tottenham from MK Dons last summer, but he has looked totally comfortable with playing in the top flight.
And Hammers midfielder Noble admits that he has been very impressed by the attacking midfielder.
“He’s young and you can tell he’s got that about him that he doesn’t care about reputations,” Noble said. “He’s a goalscorer.
“He doesn’t get too involved in the play, but he seems to always be in the right position and that’s a hard skill which he has got.
“He’s going to be a great asset for the country for the next ten years.”
Alli’s performances have thrust him into the limelight, and he has been one of the major reasons behind Spurs’ push for the Premier League title.
The youngster has hit 10 goals in his first 32 top flight appearances, and he has also created a great amount of chances for his teammates.
Alli is now a key player for both club and country, and it is widely anticipated that he will play an important role for England at EURO 2016 this summer.
