Keane warns Lingard, Tottenham’s Alli England careers could be over

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has warned Tottenham’s Dele Alli he might never play for England again.

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.

Keane was reacting to ITV presenter Mark Pougatch talking about Alli and Manchester United‘s Jesse Lingard.

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.”
