Tottenham are having their toughest season yet since Mauricio Pochettino took charge in 2014 bringing fresh ideas to the club.
This season was supposed to be the triumph of Pochettino’s era at Tottenham.
The Spurs got to the final of the Champions League last season, their stadium was fully finished, and Poche finally got some fresh blood in Lo Celso and Ndombele.
However, the reality was entirely different. The club couldn’t find a proper suitor for Eriksen who wanted to leave.
Eriksen’s rebellion attempt left him on bad terms with the manager.
On top of that, his designated replacement, Lo Celso suffered an injury that should see him out of action for a couple of months.
When it rains, it pours; it showed after the club captain, Hugo Lloris also saw an injury, but he should be back on the pitch within around a month.
Despite all the obstacles, Dele Alli expressed his faith in the Argentinian manager. Alli showed his gratitude toward Pochettino when asked if the team is still with the manager:
“Yeah, 1,000 percent. A lot of us would not be where we are now if it was not for him. All we can do is thank him,” Dele Alli said according to Metro.
“We have always trusted him 100 percent and we are going to keep doing that. We are a team.
“When things are not going our way it is easy for people to try and get at the manager but we need to look at ourselves as players.
“We are doing that and we are going to keep working hard.”
Dele Alli also had a rough start of the season, but after some injuries, he seems to be ready now.
“I am feeling very good and happy to be back in the team and playing,’ Alli said.
“I cannot take it for granted.
“I have got to keep working hard. I do not want to be back to where I was, I want to be better than that. I have got to keep working hard and trying to improve.”
