Alli urged to follow Beckham’s lead and take on PSG challenge as Ginola backs Tottenham exit for England star05-Oct-2020, 05:39 pm
Dele Alli should be looking to follow the lead of David Beckham by becoming a rare Englishman in Paris, says David Ginola, who believes the Tottenham midfielder is in need of a new challenge.
Jose Mourinho has dropped Alli down the pecking order at Spurs, with competitive game time proving to be in short supply. He played only 21 minutes off the benchin thestunning 6-1 victory for Tottenham at Manchester United.
Ginola thinks Alli wasa shadow of his former self when entering the fold at Old Trafford, seeing a player capable of producing the spectacular now favouring safer options.
PSG are reported to have asked about a loan agreement for Alli, and Ginola would love to see the England international tread a path that few fellow English players have taken before him.
The former Spurs and PSG winger told Sky Sports: “When he came on in the second half against United, you could see that he was very cautious about not losing the ball and not trying many special things like he is capable of doing on the football pitch.
“Doing that in Paris would be a new challenge for him. I don’t see why not. We haven’t had many English players playing for Paris Saint-Germain in the past so it would be interesting to see that.
“For Spurs with Heung-min Son, Harry Kane, Gareth Bale, Dele Alli – if he wants to play there with these three or four players – he needs to improve his game.
“He needs to be consistent. We have seen Son in the last couple of years, he has been tremendous – scoring goals, assisting goals.”
