Besiktas boss Senol Gunes not sure about keeping Everton loanee Dele Alli

The manager of Besiktas has given a brutally honest assessment of Dele Alli's loan spell at the club.

Dele Alli’s career has suffered another setback after he was singled out by the Besiktas manager for performing “below expectations”.

The English midfielder was given a chance to restart his career in Turkey this summer after being loaned out by Everton for a season following his move from Spurs in January this year.

Speaking ahead of their grudge match with Galatasaray, new boss Gunes said: “I couldn’t affect the players [yet], now I can easily get through to them, but we haven’t got through to Dele Alli yet.”

When asked about the former Tottenham and England player, Besiktas boss Senol Gunes believes he could be doing better.

“Let’s not discuss Dele Alli as a player, but he is below expectations in terms of efficiency”, he said.

It looked like the move was going to kick-start his career again after he scored on his second game for the club in a Super Lig clash against Ankaragucu. But the midfielder has since then missed two games due to a hamstring injury while also being substituted in the games he’s appeared in.
