Former Arsenal and Celtic forward Charlie Nicholas said on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News last Saturday afternoon (2:14pm, October 14, 2017) that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is creating a problem for himself.
Alli is one of the best young midfielders in the world and is a key figure in the current Tottenham team.
The England international midfielder, though, has been hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons so far this season.
The 21-year-old took a dive during Tottenham's Premier League game at Huddersfield Town last month.
This is not the first time that Alli has been caught diving either. The former Milton Keynes Dons youngster went down too early against Swansea City back in December 2016.
Former Arsenal and Celtic forward Nicholas has warned Alli that he is creating a problem for himself if he continues to dive.
Nicholas said about Alli on the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News last Saturday afternoon (2:14pm, October 14, 2017): “You remember Ronaldo did this and people wanted him out of the country.
“People will start looking at him. When he gets to England, people will starting picking holes in him, so he is creating a problem for himself.”
Alli has scored two goals and provided one assist in eight Premier League appearances for Tottenham so far this season.
During the 2016-17 campaign, the youngster scored 18 goals and provided seven assists in 35 league starts for Spurs.
