“Everyone expects big things from him but he’s only 23 years old. Ok, he’s now dropped a little bit but we need to help and back him.”
Pochettino was also quick to deny that Alli's desire had waned
“Would I be a pundit? Today, no.
“Also when you give your opinion people inside the club are laughing because you don’t have all the facts.
“It is easy to talk from outside. We were talking the other day about the film A Few Good Men — ‘You want the truth, you can’t handle the truth!’
“I respect every opinion but cannot pay too much attention.”
