Chelsea and their concerns
In reference to Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino stated, as reported by the Mirror, “I hope to have some time to call and see because he is a great guy and I want to talk a little bit with him and hear. I want to help him and see what is going on with him. He is still young. And for sure he has the mentality. Now it’s a long time since I spoke to him but I want to contact him again and see what is going on.”
