Tottenham Hotspur beat Burnley 1-0 in the third round (round 64) of the 2023-24 English FA Cup held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, the U.K., at 5 a.m. on Wednesday (Korea time). Tottenham will advance to the fourth round (round 32) of the FA Cup.
There is a player who is drawing keen attention ahead of the match. It is Eric Dier. “Bayern Munich is considering Dier as a new center back option,” said Fabrizio Romano, a European soccer news reporter. Thomas Tuchel already approved Dier’s recruitment last summer, but the deal fell through due to conditions. Tottenham will also have Dier leave as soon as it finds a substitute.마카오카지노도메인
Rumors of a move became even hotter after the list was disclosed. On the day, Postecoglou appointed Ben Davies and Emerson Royal as center backs. Players who returned from injury, including Mickey van der Pen and Ryan Sessegnon, were on the bench, but Dier was not listed on the candidate list.
The game went somewhat frustrating. Tottenham led the attack and threatened Burnley’s goal, but failed to take advantage of the opportunity. When Son Heung-min was absent, a rather frustrating attack unfolded. He narrowly won. Pedro Porro fired a fantastic mid-range shot in the 33rd minute of the second half to shake the net. In the end, Tottenham won 1-0.
Finally, questions were raised about Dier’s transfer after the match. Asked at a press conference after the match, “Dier is being linked to Munich. I heard they already agreed,” Postecoglou replied strongly that Dier was injured and could not participate in the match due to pain during training. “He was not linked to the transfer. Don’t question my sincerity. I think I should ask him only that part because he is injured.”
He added, “I don’t know. He’s an injury. If he wasn’t hurt, I would have said I didn’t choose to start. I can say it easily. He’s an injury and what else is going on is not my concern. I haven’t heard anything. If there’s anything I’ll know as well.”
