Tottenham superstar Eric Dier was on Tuesday night, September 29, spotted running down the Spurs’ tunnel during the Carabao Cup encounter against Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho burst out with ‘the problem is that was not a pee’ when questioned on his decision to follow Eric Dier
during the defender’s toilet break in the final stages of Spurs vs Chelsea.
Mourinho provided one of the most bizarre moments we’ve ever seen from a manager by following
Dier down the tunnel when the England international was in desperate need of relieving himself.

Eric Dier rushed off from the pitch during their Carabao Cup fourth round clash against Chelsea to use the toilet
his absence almost cost his team a goal in the second half when Callum Hudson-Odoi saw a golden opportunity
to double his side’s lead but he blazed over the bar.
Jose Mourinho then rushed to the changing room to fetch Dier.
Mourinho confirmed to the press earlier in the post-match conference following Spurs’ Carabao Cup win on penalties
that he did indeed follow Dier with the intention of hurrying the ace’s natural process.
“Nature was calling! I heard there was a chance, but thankfully they didn’t take it.”
Explaining the toilet incident, Dier told Sky Sports: “He [Mourinho] wasn’t happy,
but there wasn’t anything I could do about it.

The Spurs boss then added that the centre-back would not feature in the north London outfit’s
Europa League qualifying tie against Maccabi Haifa on Thursday night.
Dier has endured quite the couple of games, the 26-year-old suffered heartbreak after a ridiculous penalty call against
Newcastle and followed that up by somehow managing to win the Man of the Match award against Chelsea –
despite obviously needing some time off during the game to hit the toilet.
Dier has went from the lows to the highs of the football via a quick pit-stop in the toilet…
