HARRY KANE has revealed Dele Alli is "shocked and angry" after speaking to his Tottenham team-mate about his "horrible" robbery scare.
Alli was battered by knife-wielding robbers who burst in to his house as he played pool with his girlfriend and brother.
The thieves stole three watches worth £350,000 as well as other jewellery from his £2million home after evading security – with Kane now revealing Dele and his family are OK, just "shocked" and "angry".
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Kane revealed: "So I text him after it happened and he seemed OK.
"Obviously when anything like that happens I guess you'd be in a little bit of shock and I think he was a little bit angry.
"But he said to me obviously the most important thing was he was OK, his family was OK, no-one was hurt or anything like that.
"It's a horrible thing to hear, especially when it's someone close to you, one of your good friends.
"But I guess it's one of those things… it wakes you up even more to make sure you're as secure as possible in your home, doing as much as possible to make sure things like that don't happen again."
Dele, 24, was in a downstairs room with long-time partner Ruby Mae, his adopted brother Harry, Harry’s girlfriend and another male friend when the masked bandits burst in at 12.30am Wednesday morning.
They punched the Spurs midfielder in the mouth and assaulted another man after demanding the frightened group hand over valuables.
One suspect then ran upstairs and ransacked several of the star’s bedrooms.
A source told The Sun: “The group have all been left extremely shaken.
“Dele was still awake and playing pool with the others when the raiders got into the property.
“It all kicked off downstairs and Dele was punched in the mouth by one of the two masked robbers.
“One of Dele’s friends tried to have a go back. He was also beaten.
“After stealing two expensive watches from Dele, one of the robbers prowled the upstairs and some items of jewellery were taken.”
Another source close to Dele said: “It was a terrifying ordeal to go through. The two men who broke in had knives. They grabbed items and they demanded that Dele handed stuff over."
On Wednesday night, Alli took to Twitter to reassure his followers he was OK, writing: "Thank you for all the messages. Horrible experience but we’re all okay now. Appreciate the support."
After the shock robbery, Alli's pals have devised a plan to ensure the stolen watches are impossible to sell.
Dele has circulated details of their makes and models – with his football-playing friends alerting their watch dealers to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.
The prized pieces are a £150,000 Richard Mille 11-03, a £150,000 Patek Philippe 5980 Nautilus and a £50,000 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chrono.
A source said: “These robbers might think they have hit the jackpot stealing these watches, but they are going to face real problems cashing them in.
“Footballers use a handful of dealers and none will touch a stolen watch because they know it could cause serious problems down the line.
“It’s not unusual for cops in Dubai and Italy to demand to see papers for watches when passengers pass through security.
“Can you imagine if a watch stolen in a violent robbery ends up on a wrist of a player who then gets arrested?
“Dele is well connected through the England squad and knows players in Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool and London where all the main dealers are.
“These dealers know if they accidentally bought any watch that turned out to be one of Dele’s, then they would never sell to a footballer again.”
Meanwhile, Kane went on to have his say on the proposed return of Premier League football – saying players just want to see a plan.
He said: "We want to see how the Premier League give us a plan, and what that looks like and we'll go from there.
"Personally, I'm happy to start training in small groups if we are allowed and try and get back to some normality as soon as possible.
"Every player's different and everyone has there own point of view."
Kane has also generously offered to sponsor Leyton Orient’s kits for the 2020-21 season with shirts to pay thanks to coronavirus frontline workers.
