  • Alli hit rock bottom when he was booed by Besiktas fans on Wednesday
  • The 26-year-old had a poor half hour before being substituted after 29 minutes
  • Fans of Besiktas expressed their anger at his performance by taunting him off the pitch
  • To make matters worse, the hosts then fought their way back from two goals down to win
  • Turkish reporters have labeled Alli a “waste of time” after his latest nightmare

Dele Alli’s stuttering career hit a new low on Wednesday night after the former Tottenham star was booed by his own fans just 29 minutes into Besiktas’ clash with a third-tier Turkish club.

Alli joined Besiktas on a season-long loan from Everton in August after failing to revive his form at Goodison Park.

Finishing the season in 2017 with 18 goals in 37 appearances for Spurs, he looked destined for a long and successful career at the top but five-and-a-half years in the midfield has been derided by his own supporters in Turkey.

After starting Besiktas’ Turkish Cup tie against Şanlıurfa on Wednesday, Alli endured a torrid opening 29 minutes before being hooked by manager Senol Gunes as they trailed 2-0.

As he left the pitch at Vodafone Park, the home crowd could hear the 26-year-old booing after he was clearly frustrated with his dismal form for the club.

He wasn’t the only change Gunes made at that stage of the game, although it was telling that Canadian midfielder Atiba Hutchinson didn’t get the same reception when he chased off first.

To make matters worse for Alli, Besiktas completed a remarkable turnaround after being replaced by Gedson Fernandes, with the hosts fighting back to eventually claim a 4-2 win.

Turkish journalist Ali Gultiken described the ex-England international via NTV Spor as a ‘waste of time’ in assessing Besiktas’ biggest problems after their roller-coaster performance against a country’s third division team.

“Atiba is struggling now in terms of performance and because of his age. But the biggest problem is in Dele Alli’, said Gultiken. He repeated this nothing again yesterday.

He is also a difficult player for coaches. Dealing with Dele Alli is seen as a waste of time in the next tough competitive marathon.”

Oktay Derelioglu, another Turkish journalist, took it a step further by writing: ‘Dele Alli may return to England at half time’.

Alli has scored just one goal in seven league appearances for Besiktas so far, while also being on the scoresheet in his previous Turkish Cup outing.

Sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci has been baffled by his struggles since joining the club, recently admitting that no one can think of how to get him back to his best.

The MK Dons academy graduate has failed to live up to the hype of his early days at Tottenham, where he scored 69 goals in 267 appearances before leaving at the end of the 2021-22 season.

After his breathtaking 2016-17 season, he struggled to replicate the same form over the next five years, which is why he was transferred permanently to Everton.
