“I would say no” – Pundit brutally criticises Tottenham player as he urges European club not to sign him

Pundit Stuart Robson has advised former manager Jose Mourinho against signing Eric Dier in January, citing concerns about the Tottenham defender’s pace and ability to handle top-level football.

Ange Postecoglou, the new manager, has ignored the seasoned defender because he is unimpressed with the Englishman.The Englishman does not appear to be in his plans.

He has yet to appear for Spurs this year, and despite the manager making 9 changes at the time of the Fulham League Cup match, he was not even included in the team.

This season, Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven have developed a strong defensive connection that ranks among the league’s top two center-back combinations.

Next summer, when his contract expires, Dier may decide to depart on a free agent because he will have more possibilities available.

However, a recent report has linked him with a January move to AS Roma where his former manager Jose Mourinho is keen on signing him.

Jose Mourinho has a strong familiarity with the Tottenham defender, having previously coached him during his time at the Premier League club.

But pundit Stuart Robson has now warned Mourinho against signing the Tottenham defender.

Speaking to ESPN, he said:

What do you desire? Do you prefer a solid defender over someone who is able to play passes into the front players? If you want a solid defender, I wouldn’t recommend getting Eric Dier because he isn’t quick enough, doesn’t recognize danger quickly enough, and is therefore a liability. However, if you want someone who will just play out from the back, he might be a nice option.

Dier might get an opportunity to relaunch his career with a move to Roma. Given the slow tempo of play in the Italian league, Dier might not have a problem with his pace.

Given that Mourinho knows the player well and his strengths and weaknesses, it could be the perfect move for him.

For Spurs, completing a deal for him in January would be a preferable as well as they will avoid losing him on a free transfer in the summer.
