Alli has been hampered by injuries this season and didn’t make Gareth Southgate‘s England squad for the Euro 2020 Qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
Pougatch said: “If you’re Lingard or Dele Alli – interesting Dele Alli this week, getting rid of all of his commercial activities, realising that maybe he’s at a bit of a tipping point of his career: ‘hang on a second, I was the bright young thing at Tottenham and England and that’s not the case any longer’.”
Former United captain Keane said: “Yeah, we saw the signs with one or two of these young players you mentioned who have disappeared.”
Referring to cutting down on commercial work, Keane added: “They should have done that about a year ago. And they mightn’t get a chance to get back in [now]– that’s what happens in football.”
