‘His time is up’: Jamie O’Hara says the £85k-a-week star is ‘upset’ he isn’t captain of Tottenham

Jamie O’Hara has claimed Eric Dier is “upset” at not becoming Tottenham Hotspur’s next captain and urged Ange Postecoglou to sell him.

The 29-year-old was absent from Ange Postecoglou’s squad on Matchday 1 when Tottenham drew 2-2 with Brentford – new signing Micky van de Ven, goalscorer Cristian Romero and full-back Davinson Sanchez all got the minutes.

O’Hara made it clear Eric Dier “shouldn’t start” for Spurs despite being snubbed over the weekend and saying his “time was up”. Sky sports news.

The England international joined Spurs in 2015 when Mauricio Pochettino was in charge and was part of the team that fought for the Premier League title, played regularly in the Champions League and reached the European Cup final.

But it’s fair to say that Dier has suffered decline along with the club in recent years and it’s time for the manager to freshen up the defence.

Postecoglou, who named Son Heung-min captain, seems to have got the message from the fans and O’Hara offered his thoughts on the player.

On the rumors of a “fight” with Postecoglou: “I don’t think he should start for Tottenham,” said O’Hara. “His time at Tottenham is up, if I’m being honest. I don’t think he’s good enough to play for Tottenham.

“Is he a squad player? Perhaps. But I don’t think he sees himself as a squad player. I think he feels good enough to play.

“I think he’s upset that he hasn’t been given the opportunity to become captain or vice-captain. He has been with the club for a long time and is a loyal servant.

“But he’s just not good enough. Tottenham must go on. This is the future now. New manager, we have some new players, let’s freshen up and see what happens.”

You have to go

Alongside Spurs, Dier, who was a top player at the club for many years, has also fallen behind in recent years.

Whether at right-back, at the heart of defense or in the center of the park, the £85,000-a-week star (Spotrac) has played various roles for both club and country.

At times, many weren’t able to actually pinpoint his best position, which wasn’t helpful, especially when his form went off the rails.
