You’d have thought if Dele Alli wanted one rule change, it’d be not to get banned for flipping the bird at a referee.
Well, we’ve all been thrown a curveball by the Spurs man.
Dele told Soccer AM that if he were given the chance to change one rule in football, it would be to remove the offside rule entirely.
The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder said: “It would mean you can just goal hang.
“It’d be carnage. I think I do that a lot in training, just stand next to the goal trying to get as many in as possible, I score quite a few tap-ins.”
Dele’s team-mate Harry Kane has been offside five times so far this season, putting him joint seventh most offside player in the Premier League this season.
It’s not an insignificant amount, but Kane has got nothing on Burnley striker Chris Wood, who has been offside an incredible 11 times already this campaign.
He tops the chart in terms of most offsides, ahead of Huddersfield’s Steve Mounie and West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez, who have both been flagged offside on seven occasions.
