‘I know people’: Tottenham told £85k-week star could play midfield for first time in 3 years

Eric Dier, a frozen-out Tottenham star, may resume playing as a “number six,” according to Alasdair Gold.

The 29-year-old has not played for Tottenham since the team’s final preseason match against Barcelona because he has fallen out of favor with Ange Postecoglou this year.

However, as he stated on his own YouTube channel, Football London journalist Gold did indicate that Eric Dier, who has previously played in midfield, right back, and center defense during his time at Spurs, may possibly be utilized in the middle of the park once more.

Dier’s last midfield appearance came against Aston Villa in 2020, and ever then, he has played center back, often to the displeasure of many of his own fans.

The 29-year-old’s future at Hotspur Way is without a doubt in jeopardy when information about a recent meeting with Daniel Levy surfaced.

However, despite rumors that Dier may leave during the 2023 summer transfer window, he remained, and journalist Gold, who is based in Tottenham, shared his opinions on the player.

Gold opined that Eric Dier doesn’t fit the Postecoglou system as well as he believes he does. He lacks the speed necessary for that high line. When the balls are tossed above his head, he will resist. He’ll have to modify his strategy.

“I do consider it possible that he might end up playing at number six once more. Whether Bissouma or Skipp also sustain injuries.

“I am aware that people will simply despise Eric Dier because they believe he is unworthy. Whether or whether that is accurate. I believe that he was significantly impacted by the injuries last season as well. Does he seem to match Postecglou’s philosophy? No.”

Will Dier leave in January?

You have to wonder how Dier will reenter the first-team picture, especially in midfield, given that Tottenham isn’t in Europe.

The only solution is for a few players to enter the recovery area. But if the £85k-a-week star (Spotrac) is still having difficulties in January, you have to wonder how he manages to stay.

The fact that Dier played for England last year and isn’t even being considered by Gareth Southgate for Euro 2024 must be on the player’s mind.
