Sol Campbell: This Tottenham player is destined for great things and should not quit
By Danny Wright
Sol Campbell does not think that Dele Alli has to leave Tottenham in order to win a Premier League title.
The Tottenham sensation is destined to go on to great things in his career but many have said that he must leave the North London club in order to win silverware.
However Campbell, who left Spurs to win two league titles with bitter rivals Arsenal, thinks that Alli is better suited to playing for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and can become one of England’s top players.
“I don’t know if Dele will achieve everything he wants to achieve at Tottenham. But he definitely has the opportunity to win the Premier League, because of where they are,” said the former Gunners defender, as quoted by the Mirror.
“At the moment he doesn’t need to go.

“He can learn his trade under a great manager with a new stadium on the way.
“It’s just a case of not getting ahead of himself, to keep on learning. Hopefully he will keep on that trajectory over the next two or three years and become one of the best players for England.”
Spurs still have a chance at winning their maiden Premier League title this season as they are just four points behind leaders Chelsea with five games to play.
Alli, 21, has played a major part in their title-challenging form, scoring 20 goals and supplying 11 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions.
The former MK Dons midfielder will be hoping to keep their title-bid on track when his side welcome Arsenal to White Hart Lane in what is bound to be a thrilling North London derby on Sunday.
Chelsea face a trip to Everton earlier in the day and Pochettino and his men will know that they can move within a point of the league leaders if results go their way over the course of the day.
