Jose Mourinho says Dele Alli cut a dejected figure after he was hauled off at half-time of Tottenham's defeat to Everton on Sunday.

"Dele was quiet, he was sad,” said Mourinho on Wednesday, speaking to the press ahead of Tottenham's Europa League qualifier against Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

But I'm not going to speak about him anymore because he is a Real Madrid player."

“He’s a good boy, very, very polite and I never saw from him a strong reaction.

"I tried to sign him for Real Madrid which was not possible to do during my time there," he added.

The attacking midfielder had been lauded by his manager before the match, with the Portuguese pointing to his impressive form in pre-season matches and the fact that he had been omitted from the England squad as two reasons for optimism over his form going into the new season.

The England international was replaced by Moussa Sissoko at half-time, and Mourinho says he was upset by the switch.
