‘He deserves it!’ – Pochettino tips Spurs wonderkid for PFA Young Player award

first_img1 Dele Alli playing for Tottenham Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Dele Alli more than deserves the PFA Young Player of the Year award, having seen the young midfielder excel in the Premier League this season.The 19-year-old has played 43 games for Spurs this term, scoring seven goals and registering 11 assists.He has been a key figure in the North London club’s rise to Premier League challengers, and his form on the domestic stage has been rewarded with international recognition.Alli won his first cap for the senior England side in October – coming on for three minutes against Estonia – and he has since featured five times in all, scoring one goal, and becoming a guaranteed starter for the Three Lions at the European Championship this summer.Alongisde teammates Eric Dier and Harry Kane, Alli is considered one of the favourites for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, and Pochettino believes the former MK Dons star would deserve the title if he receives it at the end of this season.When asked about Alli winning the award, Pochettino said: “It would be fantastic. I think Dele Alli deserves it.“A lot of things have happened during the season. It would be a big achievement for him and the club.”Dier has been performing well alongside Alli in the Tottenham midfield, but he is risking a suspension – being just one yellow card away from his 10th of the season.Losing the young holding midfielder would be a real blow to Pochettino, but the Argentine boss insists he will not be holding back when the Lilywhites take on Manchester United this weekend.“He’s a very clever player but in football you can get a yellow card,” the head coach explained about Dier.“It’s a big risk for him but we have a strong squad. In football you always need to play 100 per cent and give your best without thinking too much.”last_img read more
