Several Tottenham Hotspur supporters think that Eric Dier’s career at the club could be resurrected following the arrival of Jose Mourinho.
The England international had struggled for game time towards the end of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign in north London, indeed he started just twice in the Premier League this season prior to the Argentine’s dismissal (Transfermarkt).
But the arrival of Mourinho should mean a fresh start for the former Sporting Lisbon man who will hope to force his way back into contention.
And it may be that Dier and the Portuguese manager are a match made in heaven. Mourinho tried to sign the 25-year-old back in 2017 whilst he was in charge of Manchester United (The Guardian) and he has even described him as “one of the best” defenders in football in the past (Metro).
Plenty of Spurs fans think that Dier will become a key player under Mourinho and are backing him to reignite his career at the club.
Here is what some have been saying about the Englishman’s prospects on Twitter…
Pretty much word for word how I feel about Jose and Poch as well James also totally agree with thoughts on Dele and think Dier will be one of Mourinho’s main generals too

Dier probably can’t believe his luck. Drifted out of the XI with Poch not really believing in him anymore, but in comes Mourinho who has been desperate to buy him in last years, and is now likely to start most games. Hopefully he performs like his first few seasons
