Tottenham's Dele Alli reacts on Twitter to fan chants about him

Audi Cup 2015

Tottenham star showed his appreciation for the fans.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli was sorely missed as his side slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Southampton.

The breakout star is serving a three-match suspension for throwing a punch in a draw with West Brom, but he remains as popular as ever with supporters.

A video was uploaded online of supporters signing on the concourse at the stadium yesterday ahead of kick-off, chanting his name.

 

The chanting even caught the attention of Alli, who acknowledged the support, commenting on Twitter.

 

Alli's opening Premier League campaign has been a huge success, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award and helping his team achieve a top four finish.

Yet having to sit on the sidelines for the remaining three games should teach him a hard lesson to keep his head, as he will again be having to watch on as Spurs bid to finish above rivals Arsenal next week by getting at least a draw away to Newcastle.
