Dele Alli blasts Tottenham 25-year-old, claims worst he's seen
By Harvey Byrne
Dele Alli has blasted Tottenham teammate Erik Lamela for having the worst tattoo in the Spurs squad.
The two attacking midfielders have been at the north London club for two years now following Alli’s £5million move from MK Dons in the 2015 winter window.
The England international is currently starring for club and country, while Lamela, 25, has been missing through injury since October.
Now, Alli has called out the Argentinian for having the worst tattoo that he’s seen in the changing room, which happens to be a football on his ankle.
“Lamela,” said Alli in an instant when asked who had the worst tattoo in BBC Three’s ‘Taxi to Training’ series.

“He’s got a football on his ankle. Probably the worst one I’ve seen in the changing rooms ever.”
Alli, 21, is known for being open with the media and has particularly built a reputation for his close relationship with teammate Eric Dier.
He is often found mocking his Spurs club mates in humorous fashion in these features and it clearly does not seem to be affecting his performances alongside those on the pitch.
The young attacker has returned a fine 19 goals and 10 assists in 42 outings in all competitions this season and with seven matches of the season left alongside an FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea he will open to add a lot more to those totals.
