"I Want My Ashes Scattered In Tottenham Hotspur Stadium"

"I Want My Ashes Scattered In Tottenham Hotspur Stadium"

Eric Dier has revealed a bizarre wish, claiming he wants his ashes to be scattered at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Dier may have done much of his growing up in Portugal with Sporting, and Everton are actually his first English club, but clearly his love for Spurs goes beyond everything else.

The centre back joined the North London club in 2014, for just £4 million, and has made 271 appearances for the club in all competitions since.

Speaking to the Evening Standard's ES Magazine this week, the England international was strangely asked where he wanted to be buried.

Dier had the perfect answer for any Spurs' fan saying, "I'd have my ashes scattered in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium."

Spurs moved from White Hart Lane into the new stadium in on April 2019, in a game against Crystal Palace, after playing at Wembley for nearly two years.

The new stadium is the newest in the Premier League and can hold up to 62,850 for a football game, making it the second largest in the league, only behind Manchester United's Old Trafford.

Like every other ground in the league, it has remained closed for over a year now and the lack of income from the stadium, plus its reported £1 billion total cost, is likely to mean a blow to transfer funds going forward.

That could mean a problem for Jose Mourinho if he wants to do any sort of rebuild of his squad in the summer, should he stay at the club beyond this season.

After the weekend's draw with Newcastle United, the manager was asked why his side struggle to keep a lead when his previous teams didn't.

The former Manchester United boss answered, 'same coach, different players,' although some have denied that it was a dig from Mourinho.

If Jose does need help with his rebuild then he can do much worse than ask for Dier's help, with the 27-year-old revealing he's a big fan of Lego.

Asked in the interview what he collects, the England international said, "Lego. I find making Lego very peaceful. I've got a lot of cars, cranes, motorbikes. The Land Rover Defender is my favourite piece of Lego and my favourite car."
