Sir Alex: Dele Alli best I’ve seen since Gazza

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed the emergence of Dele Alli at Tottenham.

Ferguson likens Alli to Paul Gascoigne and believes the youngster has huge prospects. 

“He’s the best young midfield player I’ve seen in England for many years, probably going as far back as (Paul) Gascoigne.”

“The boy’s got everything – its early doors for him, of course, but the signs are fantastic,” he said.

On Tottenham’s title challenge, he adds: “Tottenham, at the moment, are playing some of the best football I’ve seen from a Spurs team in many years – but Leicester have got the edge.”

“I think they’ll get there. Tottenham’s biggest problem (in the summer) will be keeping Mauricio Pochettino. There will be a lot eyes on him.”
