“That’s where I see my future”: Tottenham star reveals his preferred position on the pitch

Eric Dier reveals preferred position after being “politically correct” before

According to a report by The Independent, Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier has opened up about his preferred position.

Although he is a defensive midfielder by trade, Dier has always been in his element when playing as a centre-back. Under former boss Mauricio Pochettino, the 26-year-old often deputized in that role. Since Mourinho took charge, the player featured as a centre-back in the recent defeat against Wolves. Although we lost the game, Dier did a decent job to make a strong case for himself.

The report adds that he earned praise from Mourinho for his performance against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. And now, the player has revealed that he prefers playing in central defence and would like to continue in that position in the future as well.

“That’s the position I see myself playing,” Dier said. “That’s where I see my future. I was happy to be able to play today, obviously very nice of the manager speaking that way about me. I have always been very politically correct on the subject because of many different reasons.”

Dier went on to add that Pochettino was aware of where he stood on this matter and that they’ve had multiple discussions about the same over the years. He concluded by saying that he’s at a stage in his career where he just wants to play in his best position.

With Jan Vertonghen’s contract expiring and Toby Alderweireld entering the twilight of his career, it is great to see Dier coming forward and explaining his stance. He has been an able deputy in that role in the past and given his recent show against Wolves, Mourinho must consider handing him more chances in central defence.

Our performances on the field haven’t been all that great lately and our chances of a top-four finish look increasingly slim. However, with depleted depth and ageing players in a key position, Dier’s admission of his preference has come at the right time.
