Son Heung-min’s best friend Dele Alli is at the verge of retirement due to injury.
The Guardian reported on Monday (Korea time) that Ali underwent surgery for a long-lasting groin injury. “Ali’s return schedule has not been set yet. Ali tried to revive his Premier League career but encountered another setback along the way. His last official match was when he was on loan at Besiktas in Turkiye 11 months ago.”
Ali, England’s proud superstar, exploded with talent at MK Dons in the 2014/15 season. He scored 16 goals and nine assists in 39 appearances in the league, signaling the birth of a next-generation midfielder. After moving to Tottenham after the end of the season, Ali was a key player from the first season and had a successful season with 10 goals and nine assists in 33 league games.
In the 2016/17 season, he reached his peak as a “middle-riker.” With his genius, powerful kick and excellent goal-scoring ability, which reminds people of his predecessor Frank Lampard, he scored 18 goals and nine assists in 37 matches in the league. Given that he was a central midfielder, he scored an impressive 18 goals and nine assists.
Ali spearheaded Tottenham’s golden age by forming the “DESK” line with Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, and Christian Eriksen. They had their best years in the 2018/19 season, leading Tottenham to a runner-up finish in the UEFA Champions League.
However, Ali, who was already showing ups and downs in his performance, collapsed sharply. Ali, who had eight goals and four assists in the 2019/20 season, fell short of expectations, and moved to Everton in the winter of the 2021/22 season. Last season, he was loaned to Turkiye’s prestigious Besiktas, but he was excluded from the squad due to his lack of self-management. He even received harsh attention from fans as he was caught enjoying drinking alone and smoking during this period. 라바카지노주소
Ali changed his gaze after the interview in July last year. “I was molested by my mom’s friend when I was six, and she was an alcoholic,” Ali said in an interview with English legend Gary Neville. “I started smoking when I was seven, and I sold drugs when I was eight.”
“I was sent to Africa to stay with my father, but my father disappeared and I came back six months later,” he said. “I was adopted at the age of 12, and I should not wish for more than what my new family had done for me, but I couldn’t open my heart to the idea that I could be abandoned at any time, and I had to always pretend to be a good child,” he said.
Public sympathy grew as the unfortunate past was revealed. “I came to know that I needed treatment when I returned from Turkiye. I decided to go to a rehabilitation facility to treat my mental health, addiction and trauma because I was in a bad mental state,” Ali said, vowing to make efforts to recover mentally.
