Lots of have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts at the latest comments to emerge from defender Eric Dier. 

The Tottenham defender has revealed he believes there has been an ‘unfair narrative’ portrayed of him this season as the reason behind the team’ drop off in form since December 2020.

Has Dier been unfairly singled out this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Discussing his season with the north London side, Dier had the following to say:

“I think fans have seen what I can do in glimpses, especially at the beginning of the season. I think I had a very good first six months and it dropped a little bit for a few games, but I feel like I’ve been back to a good place for a couple of months now.”

“Just the narrative I see that is painted of me, at times,” he added. “It doesn’t really bother me too much. I just think it’s a bit unfair at times. It’s football.”

Despite the criticism, Dier feels he has received this season, the defender was able to keep his spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup Qualifiers in March.

Spurs fans flocked to the tweet from Alasdair Gold relaying the report and not many were impressed by the 27-year-old’s comments.

“He’s cost us 8+ goals this season and has been part of a shambolic defence. No wonder that changing room is always a let down”

“Crazy, he nearly gave a goal away at the weekend with a mistake that can only be described as daft”
“Bin him. Terminate his contract #ENICOut”
