Good article, he seems a very level headed young man, quite likely a future captain of Spurs, if we can keep him long enough.

“It’s a very relaxed approach at Sporting in terms of football,” Dier says. “They pride themselves on bringing you up as a polite and respectful person. They would never get angry with you if you missed a pass but they would do if you were disrespectful to someone. There was no shouting. I hear a lot that that is the case in England."

Interesting comment. Certainly seems to have worked for Eric.
