PHOTO: Dele Alli Gives Spurs Teammates a Fright After Showing Up to Training as Batman Villain

Publish date:

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli was sporting some rather unusual gear when training with his teammates earlier this week.

The 21-year-old had a striking resemblance to a DC Comics villain when the Spurs squad rocked up for training, ahead of their Premier League clash with West Brom on Saturday.

Although players wearing extra clothing to keep their neck and face warm on cold days is nothing new, Alli appeared to chuck his Halloween costume on from last month and come to training dressed as Bane - a supervillain from the Batman franchise. 

The character rose to popularity thanks to the film 'The Dark Knight Rises', released in 2012 and directed by Christopher Nolan, where popular actor Tom Hardy brilliantly portrayed the villain, Bane.

And there is a frightening resemblance between the two.

Tottenham fans will be hoping that their young talisman doesn't leave the club to pursue a career as an actor. However, with the news that Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the former MK Dons midfielder, the Tottenham faithful could be in favour of Alli chasing a career in Hollywood.

Alli has become one of Tottenham's most important players since arriving from MK Dons in 2015. At just 21, the midfielder could help Tottenham cement themselves as one of the best sides in European football if he stays in north London for the foreseeable future.
