Dele Alli, a ‘genius midfielder’ who once played with Son Heung-min at Tottenham Hotspur, was ordered to be expelled from the stadium by the manager.
The Turkiye media ‘Takvim’ reported on the 16th (Korean time) that “Besiktas coach Chenol Gunes instructed Ali to watch the game from the stands for the rest of the season.”
Ali, from Everton in the Premier League, went on loan to Turkish club Besiktas ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Ali, who was considered a genius midfielder in the past, left England and dreamed of resurrecting in Turkiye, but did not receive a passing grade from coach Gunes.
The media explained, “Ali, who played in 15 matches after the loan transfer of Besiktas, was recently excluded from the list for the second consecutive league match against Ankara Guizwi and Istanbul Basaksehir.”
“Ali has been expelled from the squad by manager Gunes and will spend the rest of the season playing from the stands,” he added.
Born in 1996, Ali was once one of Tottenham’s best players. In the 2015/16 season, Ali recorded 10 goals and 9 assists in the league at the young age of 19, and the following season, he recorded 18 goals and 9 assists, earning the nickname ‘the second Lampard’. 스포츠토토
At this time, Ali earned a reputation as a member of Europe’s best striker, forming the so-called ‘DESK’ line with Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min, and Harry Kane at Tottenham.
But Ali’s heyday was quickly over. Ali, whose attack points and playing time decreased as time went on, was completely pushed out of the main competition and transferred to Everton in January of last year.
Ali, who has not recorded a single attack point in 11 games even after moving to Everton, joined Besiktas ahead of the new season, but has been hard to rebound due to criticism from the manager.
Ali was criticized by coach Gunes in November of last year, saying, “He showed a poor performance,” and in January, he was booed by fans when he was replaced in the 28th minute of the first half due to poor performance in a cup match against a third division team.
