Flop Mitchell to PSG, what has that got to do with Dele Alli?


I see the kids HITC have come out with another daft article, Dele Alli to PSG because PSG might, only might, be looking at employing  Paul Mitchell.

It is well now, although not by the author it seems, that Mitchell did not find Dele Alli, David Pleat did so to attribute his signing to Mitchell is wrong.

According to the author Mitchell's record was impressive which is complete rubbish, both Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld played at a mid-table Southampton side under Mauricio Pochettino and it will have been Pochettinio who decided Spurs should buy them, not Mitchell.

His recruitment record was not very successful. Moussa Sissoko, Clinton N'Jie, Kevin-Georges N'Koudou to name just three. Our Head of Player Identification left at the same time which clearly shows we were unhappy at the quality of player they were finding. It is one thing to find players for a mid-table club but quite something else to find players who will challenge for titles and play in the UEFA Champions League. The bottom line is they couldn't handle finding that level of player. We have even overhauled Mitchell's scouting set up, again showing it wasn't working.

Quite why Mitchell possibly moving to PSG would mean a possible move for Dele Alli is beyond the comprehension of most people. PSG will be watching Dele anyway, half of Europe is, so what difference does it make if they employ Mitchell?
