Eric Dier: I’d have my ashes scattered in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

In an interview with the ES Magazine (h/t Evening Standard), Eric Dier has revealed that he would like his ashes to be scattered at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Dier, who was raised in Portugal, started his career at Sporting Lisbon before moving to England in 2014 with Tottenham. Since joining, the defender has gone from strength to strength at the club, becoming a regular for Tottenham as well as the England national team.

Till date, Dier has gone on to feature 271 times for Tottenham Hotspur, scoring and assisting 11 goals apiece. Even though he has had his fair share of lows, the 27-year-old has largely been a reliable player back under Mauricio Pochettino as well as under Jose Mourinho, although he has recently lost his place in the side.

Nonetheless, Dier showed that he is fiercely loyal to Tottenham in a recent interview. When he was asked where he would like to be buried, the England international revealed his loyalty to the club runs beyond the grave.

“I’d have my ashes scattered in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.”

Dier has grown in stature along with the club during his time at Tottenham. A key member of the Pochettino revolution, he did struggle towards the end of the Argentine’s tenure. Having looked back to his best early in Jose Mourinho’s spell, the 27-year-old also got his wish of returning to the centre-back role from midfield.

After some disappointing displays, Dier has found himself out of the starting XI in recent matches. Mourinho has preferred the partnership of Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon in the last couple of games, although the former is also a liability.

It remains to be seen if Dier can work his way back into the lineup in the coming weeks.
