Rio Ferdinand delivered a verbal shake to Tottenham star Dele Alli, urging the midfielder to seize what could be his last chance in North London, with new manager Antonio Conte.

There he is slowly slipping into darkness at Tottenham and playing fewer games, to the point where he was unable to make the squad for the Carabao Cup matches with former coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

Alli’s alarming drop in form has seen him fall into international no-man’s-land with his position in England’s senior team long gone, but Ferdinand feels not all hope is lost.

Speaking this week about his FIVE podcastFerdinand was joined by soccer reporter Fabrizio Romano to discuss, among other topics, All’s future in the game.

Speaking passionately about the 25-year-old, Ferdinand said: ‘I’m sure Dele will be sitting there saying,’ I have to get it right this time. ‘

Conte, he does not tolerate fools, he does not accept standards that are below what he sets. So I’m sure this is a great opportunity again.

“ Now he has a coach who is going to have great demands, he will constantly demand it every day. And that could be the turning point for Dele, ‘added Ferdinand.

Guest speaker Romano echoed the sentiments of the Manchester United legend, who offered a measure of insight and claimed sources close to Spurs had told him that Conte had left the door open for Alli.

The Italian manager is said to be keen for the midfielder to triumph for his team, but insists he must prove himself.

There he started the season with six Premier League starts, but lost favor with Santo.

He was only on the field for 17 minutes in the top flight after being withdrawn at halftime from the North London derby, and has been a minority figure ever since.
