Dele Alli admits that as a Tottenham player he has made a lot of mistakes.
Alli, 23, was just 16 in his league debut for MK Dons and 19 in his first full England cap.
He told the Otro YouTube channel: “After I started playing for the national team a lot of people would stop me and ask for pictures.
“A year before, I was a normal kid from Milton Keynes who could go anywhere and do whatever I wanted without being noticed.
“But when you join the Premier League you start to get noticed and you have to be a role model.
“I’ve always tried to live my life as a good person but I’ve made a lot of mistakes and it’s all about adapting and learning from them.
“I’m still young and each experience is a new one for me, so it’s important to have good people around you — and I’ve always had that growing up.”
