Dele Alli pledges future to Tottenham Hotspur next season

26th May 2018 0 By admin

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has revealed that his teammates at the club feel like “family” and is focused on improving with them next season.

The club secured Champions League qualification for next season, however, Spurs were yet again unable to claim any silverware – something the 22-year-old is keen to put right during the next campaign.

Dele is one of five players expected to sign a new contract with Tottenham following manager Mauricio Pochettino who recently committed his future to the club for five more years.

“We’re going to continue improving”

The midfielder enjoyed a successful campaign on a personal note, having scored 14 goals and registered 17 assists this season, but admitted that as a team, the 2017/2018 campaign was disappointing.

Tottenham were eliminated from the Champions League in cruel fashion, conceding twice in just five minutes, along with a second consecutive FA Cup semi-final defeat.

The former League One player will now help to push his teammates to continue to improve as they go in search of silverware.

Dele said:

“It’s been a difficult season at times but we’ve shown we’re a top team, we’re improving and we’re going to continue improving.”

“That’s why the team is doing so well, players want to improve together and individually, we all want to improve as well and become better people on and off the pitch.

“Everyone is working hard every day to get the best out of each other and the best out of themselves.

“It’s very important and that shows in games as well, when you go into difficult places and your team-mates, when they are like family you know you can put all your trust in them and you don’t want to let them down.”
