Alli happy to remain part of Pochettino's Spurs revolution


By Phil Blanche

Dele Alli admits he "can't see many better places" to improve than under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham.

England star Alli has become hot property in under two seasons at Spurs following his £5million move from MK Dons.

European champions Real Madrid are among those to have been linked with the 21-year-old, who has scored 31 goals since his switch to London.

And although he admits it is impossible to predict his future, Alli says he is happy to be part of Pochettino's exciting young side who will finish runners-up to Premier League champions Chelsea.

"We all want to achieve stuff," Alli said.

"It's a good place to be, and with the manager we've got here I can't see many better places for me personally to improve.

"It's a fantastic club to be a part of. We're all looking to learn together and build together and be as successful as we can.

"You never say what's going to happen in the future.

"It's important that I enjoy the journey - whether I stay at Tottenham for the rest of my career or one day I have to leave."

Alli had some bad news for Premier League defenders as he warned them that he is becoming even better in front of goal.

He has more than doubled the 10-goal haul of his first Spurs season, with 21 goals in all competitions heading into tomorrow night's visit to Leicester and the final league game of the season at Hull on Sunday.

"I've got more clinical, especially as the season's gone on," he added.
