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.”
“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.
