Dele Alli has continued to receive unwavering support, almost a week on from his interview with Gary Neville.

Speaking on The Debrief podcast, former Tottenham Hotspur winger, Darren Anderton, has admitted that Everton still have a ‘wonderful’ talent in the midfielder and is eager to see him back to his best.

Dele joined Neville on his ‘The Overlap’ YouTube channel five days ago to open up on his drastic decline in form, as well as issues during his childhood and his recent addiction to sleeping pills.

The interview has already become the channel’s second most watched video with a whopping 5.1 million views in only five days.

Anderton is one of many former footballers to praise Dele for his braveness, with the 51-year-old hopeful that he can find some form with the Toffees.

“I think it’s amazing what he’s done,” Anderton told The Debrief. “It was very sad to listen to – listening to such a wonderful talent going through such bad times.

“To see him struggling firstly on the football pitch has been really tough to watch because what a footballer, what a talent. And then to listen to that was really sad but I’m proud of him for doing it.

“Hopefully he gets better and gets back to what he’s all about and that’s being a wonderful footballer.”

Everton could be very lucky to welcome the redemption of Dele Alli

Dele Alli’s interview was extremely emotional and heartbreaking – changing thousands of fans’ opinions on him within a 43 minute video.

The midfielder has left the world of football waiting to see what he does next and whether he can rediscover his form that threw him into the limelight at White Hart Lane all those years ago.

While many watch from afar, Everton are the ones that get to enjoy his redemption first hand.

Of course, it is a risk for Sean Dyche to feature him in the Premier League if they will have to cough up the £10 million after a certain amount of appearances. However, if Dele can find his feet like he is so confident in doing, then it could be a huge game changer for the Merseyside club.
