On-loan Tottenham defender faces early criticism at new club

By Mehdi Gokal -

It appears that Eric Dier’s stint at Bayern Munich might be short-lived, with reports indicating that the German club is unlikely to extend his contract beyond the current season.

Dier, who joined Bayern from Tottenham Hotspur in January, has struggled to make a significant impact.

Despite making five appearances, including three starts in the league, his performances have failed to meet expectations.

According to Sport Bild (via Daily Mail), the decision to not renew his contract stems from the Bundesliga club’s ‘doubts about his ability and lack of pace’.

With Bayern experiencing setbacks in recent matches, including losses in both league and Champions League fixtures, Dier’s performances have come under scrutiny.

Despite featuring in their Bundesliga defeats, he was left on the bench for the European fixture by manager Thomas Tuchel.

Spurs secured the Englishman from the Portuguese club Sporting in the summer of 2014 on a five-year contract, completing the transfer for a modest fee of just €5 million.

Dier went on to make an impressive 364 appearances for Tottenham, making valuable contributions with 13 goals and 12 assists. He even had the honour of leading the side out on several occasions.

The 30-year-old, however, had faced a dip in form recently and struggled to make an impact under Spurs’ new manager Ange Postecoglou this season, managing just one Premier League start before opting to end his lengthy tenure with the Lilywhites.

Last month, Dier was loaned to the Bundesliga club on a six-month deal, with the possibility of extending it for an additional year. The 30-year-old’s loan move to Bayern was seen as an opportunity for him to revive his career, but it seems that he is struggling there as well.

As the season progresses, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Dier, both at Bayern Munich and beyond.
