Stan Collymore has hailed Tottenham ace Dele Alli following his stunning performance during the 4-0 win against Watford on Saturday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
Broadcaster Collymore reminded supporters of the comments he made about the 22-year-old when he joined the club in 2015.
Collymore predicted that Alli would become England’s “most important” player in the next ten years as he was gloating about his prediction following his display against the Hornets.
Alli moved to north London from League One outfit MK Dons after helping the club earn promotion to the Championship.
During the game, this was Collymore’s mid-match verdict on Alli and his startling display for his title-chasing team.
