Dele Alli’s real mother claims she had “no idea” the midfielder had been abused as a child until he agreed to an interview last week.

In an emotional interview with Gary Neville, the Everton midfielder disclosed that he was assaulted by his mother’s friend when he was six years old.

Alli, who has lost contact with his biological parents, moved up with Alan and Sally Hickford when he was 12 years old and refers to them as his adopted parents.

“I haven’t been able to stop crying since hearing my son describe his childhood abuse.” “I had no idea he’d been abused,” his biological mother told The UK Sun.

“I’m very sorry. It aches my heart to think that someone I let into my home may have betrayed my trust in the most heinous way possible.

“I can’t express how upset I am.” I no longer have communication with my son, and I can only hope to see him again.”
