Tottenham boss Antonio Conte reveals promise to Dele Alli before Everton


Newly-appointed Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has, on Saturday, provided an insight into his early plans for Dele Alli.

Toffees showdown

Italian tactician Conte is of course set to oversee his 2nd outing in the Spurs dugout this weekend.

After guiding his side to a less than convincing 3-2 downing of Dutch outfit Vitesse on Thursday night, the Lilywhites will turn their attentions back towards matters on the domestic front tomorrow afternoon.

A Premier League meeting with Everton lies in wait, at Goodison Park.

Tottenham head into the clash in search of a much-needed return to winning ways, having slipped to the depths of mid-table owing to successive defeats at the hands of West Ham and Manchester United over the last couple of weeks.

And, as outlined above, ahead of his 2nd Premier League debut, Antonio Conte has today spoken out over the place of one of the more high-profile members of his squad in his plans moving forward.

With the 25-year-old’s work-rate having long been called into question, in turn, murmurs had already begun to spread that Conte’s arrival in north London could signal the beginning of the end for Alli in Tottenham’s colours.

If the latest comments on the part of the Italian himself are anything to go by, however, then his oft-maligned midfield talent could yet be afforded the opportunity to save his stuttering Spurs career.

Speaking to the media ahead of making the trip to Merseyside, Conte, on Saturday, had the following to say regarding Alli’s place in his squad:
