After a very long season which only came to an end at the start of last month, players from the Tottenham Hotspur squad who are not on international duty will welcome the current break.
Dele Alli, who was in action with England at the World Cup last year, appears to have been making the most of his post-season holidays.
But according to a report by the Sun, Alli was spotted horribly drunk during his vacation in the Greek island of Mykonos.
The midfielder was not at his best last season, and the latest leak from the Sun could land him in more hot water with the Spurs faithful as well as the club’s authorities.
After allegedly being spotted while he was passed out from being drunk, Dele will have some questions to answer when he reports back from the holidays.
Thus, pundit and ex-Sunderland player Micky Gray has warned the Spurs star about the trouble he could find himself in.
“I’m not going to sit here and say that football hasn’t changed. We all keep talking about it every single day.” Gray said, as per talkSPORT
“But social media wasn’t around when I was around. You could go and let your hair down for a couple of weeks. You could go on a lads holiday.
“But eventually it’s grown into the game and there are people with phones all over the world.
“So wherever [players] go on holiday, they know there’s an eye on them looking at what they are doing.
“Now if Dele is drunk… he probably didn’t think he was going to find himself on the front pages of the newspaper – but he has done now.
“So an answer has got to come from himself or from the club or he might find himself going back to pre-season and be in big trouble.
“You’ve worked your socks off for ten months of the season, got to a Champions League final.
“I’m not saying he’s played every single week but you go on holiday and he’s probably thought to himself: ‘I have earned these two weeks of holiday and I can do what I want. When the season starts, I won’t be doing this kind of thing’.
“He’s probably thinking: ‘Please don’t take a photograph and let me enjoy myself’.
“But it’s there. social media is there now. You have to be careful all 12 months of the year.”
