Dele Alli told his career could be ‘all over’ as reality of Besiktas disaster kicks in

Dele Alli has received cautionary advice that his profession might be reaching its conclusion, in the wake of his unsuccessful stint at Besiktas. Ally McCoist and Ray Parlour have both expressed their truthful opinions on what lies ahead for the ex-Tottenham player.

In just a few years, Dele Alli’s career trajectory has shifted dramatically from being one of the most promising young players in Europe to becoming a forgotten talent.

 His relationship with Jose Mourinho at Tottenham deteriorated, resulting in him leaving the club in January 2022. 

Although Everton took a chance on him, his form did not improve under Frank Lampard. Alli joined Besiktas on loan last August and has made 15 league appearances, scoring two goals.

 However, the club’s change of manager in October meant that new boss Senol Gunes does not rate Alli as a player.

Alli’s chances of being selected by Gunes for the rest of the season are slim, as the manager has reportedly decided to exclude him from the squad. Alli’s most recent appearance was in a goalless draw against Antalyaspor on February 26. Furthermore, Besiktas has opted not to exercise the £8 million clause to purchase him in the summer.

Various former football players and experts have shared their thoughts on Alli’s situation. Darren Bent, a former Tottenham striker, has advised him that his future may not lie in the Premier League. 

Ally McCoist, a Rangers legend and pundit, expressed his sorrow at witnessing Alli’s career decline, and has also raised doubts about whether the midfielder, who is currently 26 years old, can revive his career.

McCoist said on talkSPORT: “I actually find it very, very sad. I really do. That talent. Is it too late now? Is it all over?”

TalkSPORT host Alan Brazil stepped in with his opinion. He said: “That’s it, who’s going to take a chance now?”

Ray Parlour, a former Arsenal star, has provided his opinion on how Alli can potentially revive his career. He suggests that Alli needs to be willing to make financial compromises in order to attract interest from prospective clubs.

Parlour said: “The problem is, they’re on big money, suddenly the player now has got to say ‘right, I’m going to take a massive pay cut and prove myself to people’.

“That’s what I would do. If you had a little bit about you, say ‘pay me as I play, let me prove I’m still a top player’.

“Because you can get paid every week, you know what football’s like. Footballers are in total control because whatever happens in your career, you still get the same money if you sign a contract.

“Now he’s got to now go and prove that he is a top player – he must have been a top player at one stage because he was playing for England.”
