Jose Mourinho Drops The Biggest Hint On Dele Alli’s Future At Tottenham

There has been growing speculation over the future of England and Tottenham midfielder, Dele Alli, in recent weeks, but Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has given a hint on his future.

Here is what the Spur’s boss said about the 24-year-old’s possible stay in north London.

“I am not tired of Delle because he is a great kid but I am tired of questions on Dele,” Mourinho told BBC Sports.

“I always feel that 99% of the responsibility is the player. I have 1%. Me and my staff and the people that work everybody has 1%.

“It’s 99% belongs to them.”

Asked if Alli would still be here by the end of the transfer window, Mourinho nodded.

The England international played 45 minutes of Tottenham's season opener against Everton but found himself omitted from the whole squad for the trip to Southampton.
