If the worst happens, Tottenham defender Eric Dier might be sidelined for several months, according to Dr. Rajpal Brar.
According to the injury expert, his absence is expected to last several weeks, and it is unlikely that he will be back for the upcoming match.
Ange Postecoglou has disclosed that he has been sidelined for some time due to a groin problem.
Physical therapist and sports scientist Dr. Brar, who spoke exclusively with Tottenham News about Dier’s condition of play, stated: “At first, the best-case scenario would have been simply muscle soreness and him being available for the next match, provided that soreness and discomfort subsided.”
He does appear to be out for at least a few weeks, though.
In the worst situation, a high-grade muscle tear would occur; in this instance, the recovery period would depend on the particulars, such as the muscle and the degree of damage.
“In that scenario, he sees months ahead of time.”
Despite an injury crisis, Tottenham’s 29-year-old Dier has made only sporadic appearances for Postecoglou’s team this season.
For the first squad, layoffs lasting longer than a month are anticipated for Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, and Rodrigo Bentancur.
Dier might not be a starter even if it’s unclear if he will be able to return in December.
In the league season, he has only played 146 minutes, and Postecoglou has only once selected him for the starting eleven.
In other Tottenham Hotspur news, there are rumors that one of the players may be out longer than anticipated due to a setback in his recuperation.
