Dele Alli has posted an emotional message on social media for the first time since being booed by his own supporters, with the Besiktas loanee saying ‘football saved his life’.

The Everton midfielder, who is currently at Besiktas on a season-long loan, was replaced just 28 minutes into their Turkish Cup clash against third tier Sanliurfaspor last Wednesday.

Alli was taken off to a chorus of boos when Besiktas had fallen two goals behind, with the Turkish giants managing to fight back to win the cup match 4-2 without the former Tottenham

The 26-year-old midfielder has endured a tough time of late, with a loss of form at Tottenham leading him to leave for Everton on a permanent basis before a season-long stint in Turkey but the England international insists he has lost none of his love for a game that has given him so much. 

 

Dele has registered two goals for Besiktas, but remains a long way short of finding the form that once saw him hit 22 goals for Spurs in the 2016-17 campaign.
