Spurs attacker Dele Alli has been sent a social media warning by Micky Gray after pictures of him emerged being drunk on holiday.

The England international was pictured being carried away after collapsing on a sun lounger on the Greek island of Mykonos.


Alli has reportedly been drinking in 33-degree heat before passing out.

And Gray while Speaking to talkSPORT has admitted that it is difficult for players to keep out of the spotlight after the advent of social media.

“I’m not going to sit hear and say that football hasn’t changed,” Gray told the Sports Bar.

“We all keep talking about it every single day.

“But social media wasn’t around when I was around. You could go and let your hair down for a couple of weeks. You could go on a lads holiday.

“But eventually it’s grown into the game and there are people with phones all over the world.

“So wherever [players] go on holiday, they know there’s an eye on them looking at what they are doing.

“Now if Dele is drunk… he probably didn’t think he was going to find himself on the front pages of the newspaper – but he has done now.

“So an answer has got to come from himself or from the club or he might find himself going back to pre-season and be in big trouble.”

Gray continued that Alli had every right to relax after an exhausting season but advised him to exercise some caution as Social media exists 24X7, seven days a week.

“You’ve worked your socks off for ten months of the season, got to a Champions League final.

“I’m not saying he’s played every single week but you go on holiday and he’s probably thought to himself: ‘I have earned these two weeks of holiday and I can do what I want. When the season starts, I won’t be doing this kind of thing’.

“He’s probably thinking: ‘Please don’t take a photograph and let me enjoy myself’.

“But it’s there. social media is there now. You HAVE to be careful all 12 months of the year.”

Dele Alli is expected to return to Mauricio Pochettino’s pre-season camp at the end of the week.
