Ex-Everton captain Stubbs on Dele Alli demise: Something has gone drastically wrong

Former Everton captain Alan Stubbs is amazed by the demise of Dele Alli.

Having fallen out of favour at Tottenham, Alli joined Everton in January on an initial free transfer that could rise to £40MILLION.

He was then shipped off on loan to Turkish side Besiktas in the summer.

And Stubbs, 51, reckons his Everton career is already over.

He declared to Football Betting: "Dele doesn't have a future at Everton.

"It's a strange situation because I don't think I can ever remember a player falling off a cliff as quickly as Alli has.

"I don't know what's gone on in his private life but to go from being an England international to not being anywhere near that level is really bizarre."

Stubbs continued: "I personally feel sorry for him because something has gone drastically wrong.

"He's still got plenty of years left in him but he looks like he's lost the love for football."
