Former Tottenham Hotspur ace Paul Stewart believes that Dele Alli would be enthused by the prospect of the club appointing Mauricio Pochettino as manager once again.
Spurs have been linked with a sensational reunion with the Argentine in recent days.
Goal reported over the weekend that Pochettino, who is also a target for Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane’s departure, has asked to leave PSG this summer.
Should Tottenham sell Alli?
The Athletic reported last week that Spurs had entered into talks with Pochettino over a move that would see him return to north London just 18 months after his sacking.
Alli, of course, was one of the chief beneficiaries of Pochettino’s first reign at the club, as he moved to the club from MK Dons and became an integral member of the first-team, while also earning England recognition.
In total, Alli made 194 appearances under Pochettino, scoring 55 goals and laying on 52 assists.
This season, under Jose Mourinho, the 25-year-old was marginalised, though, making just seven starts in the Premier League.
And Stewart has told The Transfer Tavern exclusively that Alli would surely be delighted if Pochettino did choose to return.
He said: “I’m sure Dele Alli would be smiling from ear to ear because he hasn’t really hit it off with the managers that proceeded Poch.
“Poch seemed to play him a lot.”
