Alex Fergusuon Told Me To Sign Dele Alli At Man United – Mourinho - one year ago

Jose Mourinho has revealed the only advice Sir Alex Ferguson gave him when manager of Manchester United was to sign Dele Alli. Mourinho, who now manages Alli at Tottenham, made the confession to his chairman Daniel Levy in a meeting shown on the Amazon Prime Video documentary All or Nothing. The Portuguese had just taken over from Mauricio Pochettino in north London and was discussing his early impressions of Alli. He said: “I told already Dele very directly that he doesn’t train well, he is not a good trainer. “I am not saying a disaster but I am not saying Harry Kane, Harry Kane is a very good trainer. “Sir Alex Ferguson gave me only one bit of advice in two and a half years: Buy Dele Alli. ‘That guy, with that mentality, the way he plays, the aggression he has in mind. This guy is the Manchester United player. Buy Dele Alli’. “And he [Ferguson] has an eye for a player. But he [Alli] is not a good trainer, we need to find motivation for the guy.”
