Tottenham player has just held talks with Daniel Levy after what Ange Postecoglou has done

Eric Dier has reportedly held talks with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy after being frozen out by Ange Postecoglou this season.

According to The Telegraph, Dier had a “frank conversation” with the chairman of the Spurs this week.

Dier hasn’t played a single minute for Tottenham so far this year, and Postecoglou hasn’t even included him in a single matchday squad.

In fact, the Australian manager chose to start Ashley Phillips, a young player, over the 29-year-old for the next match against Burnley on Saturday.

Naturally, since Davinson Sanchez joined Galatasaray this week, Spurs have released him from their roster.

But it remains unclear whether Dier will be reintegrated into the next squad, even after Sanchez’s departure. And it seems that the £85,000-a-week defender has decided to hold talks with Daniel Levy.

Diers holds talks with Levy

Dier has reportedly spoken with Levy after failing to make Postecoglou’s matchday squads this season, according to The Telegraph.

Although it is stated that the two had a “frank conversation,” there have been no hints of a fight or other fallout.

Although the source asserts that the meeting’s specifics have been kept confidential, it has been deemed ‘probable’ that Dier was looking for clarification regarding both his future and the reason behind his lack of playing time.

With only one year remaining on his contract, Dier is obviously not part of Postecoglou’s long-term intentions for Tottenham.

The Englishman is just not suited to playing in a high defensive line, therefore it is not surprising that the Australian coach has frozen him out of the team.

He even had opportunities to leave this summer and appeared to be leaving before the deadline last week.

Given that Dier had a chance to move on over the summer, it is tough to empathize with him.


£17m Spurs talent could make international debut this week; he could become ‘extraordinary’ for Ange

This summer, Ange Postecoglou added a number of players to the Tottenham Hotspur roster in an effort to strengthen his squad.

Over the previous few months, Spurs have added players like James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Brennan Johnson, and Manor Solomon.

Along with adding a goalkeeper, Tottenham responded to Hugo Lloris’ wish to quit the team.

Despite receiving a slightly mixed reception upon joining Spurs, Guglielmo Vicario has soon gained a large following.

In his first four games, the 26-year-old has preserved two clean sheets and displayed excellent distribution.

Vicario is also capable of outstanding stops, such as the one against Burnley in the 56th minute.

On top of that, the £17million man’s attitude has been great. He’s passionate, hungry and eager to keep improving.

Solid addition’

Vicario might now make his international debut now that the international break is approaching.

He will play for Italy against North Macedonia and Ukraine in the Euro 2024 qualifying round.

The Spurs goalkeeper was mentioned in a Whoscored piece regarding players who might make their debuts for their countries during the current break.

While Gianluigi Donnarumma appears to be the Azzurri’s top choice for years to come, Luciano Spalletti’s appointment as Italy manager last month gives those vying for a regular spot for the reigning European champions the opportunity to force their way into the reckoning.

Among those hoping to receive his first senior cap is Guglielmo Vicario. With a save success rate of 84.2%, the 26-year-old has shown to be a strong acquisition for a Tottenham team that has 10 points after its first four games. Only Alisson (90%) has earned better.

Vicario has performed well at Tottenham thus far despite the fact that it is still early in the season.

Gianluigi Buffon, a former Italy goalkeeper, said Vicario was performing “extraordinary” feats for the team last year. Let’s hope he can continue playing for the defending Euro 2020 champions and Spurs.
