Simon Jordan compares Tottenham ace Alli to 25-year-old flop after bold Hazard claims
By Amir Mir
Simon Jordan has hit out at Micky Hazard after he claimed that Tottenham ace Dele Alli has been the best player in the Premier League this season.
Former Crystal Palace chairman Jordan appeared to suggest that Hazard does not know how to judge young players using John Bostock as an example.
Former Spurs midfielder Bostock, who was coached by Hazard as a youngster, was tipped to be the next big thing in English football when he was a teenager.
However, the 25-year-old flop failed to live up to expectations and is now plying his trade with French outfit Lens.
Here is Jordan seemingly comparing Alli to Bostock and hitting out at Hazard for his bold claims about the youngster.

Bostock came through the ranks at Palace and made an unpopular move to Spurs whilst Jodan was the owner of the club.
He failed to make an appearance for Tottenham and subsequently failed to live up to the hype and expectations put on him as a youngster.
By contrast, Alli is now regarded as one of the best players in the league, at this moment in time.
The England international has scored 16 league goals this season, a staggering number considering he does not play as a striker.
Alli was not on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award to the amazement of the club’s former player, Hazard.
In other Tottenham news, Glenn Hoddle believes the club should sell this £50million duo to go the next level.
