About Dele Alli and his career

Dele has been playing for Tottenham Hotspur and has made 35 appearances until now. He scored nine goals but now the game season is suspended due to coronavirus pandemic. But by next week, the Premier League teams would start their rehearsal. But the players are yet unsure of when they can play. They have been unable to speak to their club captains.

One day back, the club captains had a meeting with the Premier League and medical experts to draft the protocols which all players have to follow during the training so that it is as safe as possible. It is possible that within the next seven days the training could start. But the players and managers should first go through and back the suggested proposals. Additionally, government and Public Health England should provide a nod for the training to resume by next Tuesday.
