Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier revealed the reason that prompted him to leave the stadium for the match between the Spurs and Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, via a question he wrote on social media.
Dyer was taken by the camera as he was leaving the stadium heading to the tunnel leading to the locker room in the second half of the match,
which ended in favor of Tottenham with penalties,
while the veteran Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, the Tottenham Hotspur coach, followed him.
Most likely, Dyer had an urgent need to use the bathroom,
which was already confirmed by the player in his statements about the incident after the match.
“He (Mourinho) was not happy, but there was nothing I could do about it, nature called me!” Dier told the British “Sky Sports” network, bursting with laughter.
“I heard there was a chance for Chelsea when I left the field,” Dyer said, “but fortunately they didn’t score a goal.”
“There were a lot of times when we felt pressure during the match,” he added.
“Clearly after playing Sunday and tonight, it was not easy,” Dier said.
“Maybe this was one of the reasons that pushed me out of the field in the second half,” the Tottenham player added.
Eric Dier was named the best player in the match thanks to his performance against the Blues,
and the player actually posted a picture of him with the prize on his personal account on the Instagram photo-sharing site,
and he placed the award on the toilet, and next to it was toilet paper.
“I am very happy, and proud of the way we played in the first twenty minutes,”
Dier said in his comments about the win over Chelsea.
“We were great for the rest of the match, and the game ethics were amazing.”
