EXAMPLE TO ALL IN ALLI’S RISE TO PEAK
DELE Alli’s success for England illustrates just what a wonderful and unique asset the Football League is to this country.
No other country in Europe has three lower divisions as strong, competitive and physically demanding as ours.
That’s why Dele, for all his obvious talent, has been able to step almost straight from League One with MK Dons on to the international stage.
He’s a great example to young players who might be thinking twice about leaving an academy to mix it in the rough stuff. Get out for six months, get toughened up and you never know where it could take you.
