Bayern Munich has tied down defender Eric Dier

Bayern Munich has tied down defender Eric Dier (30) until June 2025. However, on the euphoric day of his contract extension, Dier was criticized for his defense.

Munich announced on its website on June 2 (KST): “Dyer stays with us for another year. We have extended his contract for one more season until June 2025,” the club announced on its website.

Dier, who had been playing for Tottenham since 2015, moved to Munich on loan in January.

After making just one English Premier League (EPL) start for Tottenham in the 2023-2024 season, he was looking for a fresh start in Munich. His original loan was to last until this season. However, at the time of his transfer, he had an option to extend his contract by one year if he played a certain number of games. This has now been triggered.

Dyer will be joining the Bavarians as a permanent player next season, removing the ‘loan’ label.

Munich brought Dyer in on short notice to fill the void left by Kim Min-jae’s Asian Cup call-up in January/February.

Dyer has appeared in seven games (five starts) since joining the club. Munich’s record in those games is 4 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses.

Munich’s current record is not good.

With 17 wins, 3 draws, 4 losses, and 54 points, they are seven points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen (61 points), who have played one game less. In fact, many believe that winning the Bundesliga this season is out of the question.

Nevertheless, Munich extended Dier’s contract for another year.

“Dier is a valuable defensive resource with all his abilities,” the club said in a statement, and Dier said, “My future is now in order. I will play well for the team. I will focus on playing well for the team and helping us win the title.”

However, the day he signed the extension, Dyer was criticized.

Dyer played the full match against SC Freiburg in the 24th round of the 2023-2024 Bundesliga at the Europa-Parkstadion in Freiburg, Germany, 스포츠토토 on Feb. 2 and received poor reviews. The teams drew 2-2.

Munich started shakily and conceded an early goal. In the 12th minute, Schurrle headed in a cross that was saved by the goalkeeper, and then he connected with a bicycle kick from a high ball that hit the post.

Freiburg battled for the ball in the air before Günter found the back of the net with a half-volley.

Munich weren’t going to take it lying down.

In the 35th minute, Tell found the back of the net with a powerful right-footed shot following a good touch in the box. A wonder goal to tie the game.

From there, Munich continued to pound away at the goal and turned the game around in the second half. In the 30th minute, Moussaoui Al-Moussaoui broke through the defense on a solo dribble from the left flank after a pass from Kim Min-Jae. After shaking off three defenders, Moussaoui scored the game-winning goal with an accurate shot. Kim Min-Jae’s first assist in the Bundesliga.

However, Munich could not maintain their focus. In the 42nd minute, a long throw-in into the box found Michael Gregoric, who touched the ball with the ball of his foot. The ball was then headed straight into the net by Hoeller, and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Speaking to DAZN after the game, Munich coach Thomas Tuchel pointed to the Munich defense, which was guarded by Dyer and Kim Min-jae. “There was a lack of communication in defense and no one realized that the game was changing,” he said.

“I don’t think it’s a question of the players’ will. It’s a matter of tactical execution. Some of them were ‘hara-kiri’. There was one where the center back ran ahead of the fullback. They played a play that we didn’t train or discuss,” he said, referring to the central defenders as “snipers.
