Eric Dier’s injury problems seem to continue.
— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) 13 July 2019
An update from Spurs which can be read on the Tottenham Hotspur website revealed that Dier would be missing the club’s pre-season tour of Singapore and Shanghai. Indeed, he’ll be undergoing a medical procedure to correct an issue detected during medical assessments on the first day of pre-season.
It’s yet more misery for the defensive midfielder. The England international missed a large portion of action last season with injuries and illnesses. Despite the fact that Spurs competed in 58 competitive games last season, he featured in just 28 of those, per Transfermarkt.
With fellow central midfielder Tanguy Ndombele now on board, there have also been reports from the likes of Football Insider this summer casting doubt on Dier’s future in North London, with Manchester United thought to hold an interest in the former Sporting Lisbon man.
Still, judging by some of the responses below, you can see he does retain quite a bit of support from sections of the fanbase.
