Dele Alli seems to be enjoying his vacation after an injury-stricken season with Spurs.
Already counted amongst the most promising youngsters in the Premier League, Alli has added his name to a list enumerated with some of the biggest names in the celebrity world.
The Kardashians, Conor McGregor, Rihanna, racer Lewis Hamilton, Nicole Scherzinger, Olympian Louis Smith, One Direction star Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and pop idol Justin Bieber are indeed a great company to be counted in for the Spurs man but he won’t like the reason.
Besides being absolute bigwigs in their respective industries, the aforementioned set of celebrities are notorious for hanging out with famous ‘celebrity fixer’ Leon Starino, and he is a man whose association breeds controversy (source).
Recently Alli posted a picture with Starino and Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in the background that has got a few fans worried.
Who is ‘Starino’?
Leon Starino Anderson (on the left) is the brother of the Victoria Secret star, Leomie Anderson. Anderson claims to be a celebrity PR man who happened to have arranged endorsement deals with major brand names for several stars.
Suspected as a drug dealer and a pimp, he is a ‘good friend’ to some of the biggest celebrities. Anderson was constantly at Bieber’s side during his 2013 controversial Believe tour in the UK, which was filled with scandals, where he arranged ‘everything’ for the star (source).
Dele’s role for next season
Although they don’t have any silverware to show for it, Spurs enjoyed a brilliant season which saw them reach the final of the Champions League.
The fans would want more of the same and maybe even better as it seems manager Mauricio Pochettino has been promised funds as he looks to invigorate the Lilywhites with new transfers.
Pochettino has previously trusted Alli with important roles for Spurs and with Christian Eriksen linked away from North London, the Argentine tactician would expect Dele to raise to the occasion, especially when it comes to replace the Dane’s creativity.
Next season will be vital for the English playmaker and the last thing he would need now is a controversy.
