‘Nature was calling!’ – Eric Dier and Jose Mourinho joke about incident during Tottenham’s win over Chelsea as thumbnail

Eric Dier joked ‘nature was calling’ after he was forced to leave the pitch midway through Tottenham’s Carabao Cup win over Chelsea. The England ace sprinted down the tunnel, leaving his side temporarily with ten men, with 15 minutes left to play as he was desperate for the toilet. Sky Sports Boss Jose Mourinho appeared to be fuming with Dier as he ran off the pitch Sky Sports The Tottenham boss followed his player down the tunnel to get him back Twitter After a quick break, Dier was then seen running back on to the pitch Spurs were trailing 1-0 at the time, and Jose Mourinho followed his player to the dressing room to hurry him along. Chelsea almost scored in Dier’s absence, with Callum Hudson-Odoi wasting a golden opportunity to double the visitors’ lead. After a quick toilet break, Dier emerged and went on to score in the penalty shootout as Spurs won on spot-kicks following Erik Lamela’s late equaliser. Dier, who was named man of the match, later tweeted a picture of a toilet in the Tottenham dressing room accompanied by the message – ‘The real M.O.M.’ Reflecting on his eventful night, he said: “After playing on Sunday and then tonight, it wasn’t easy. Maybe that was one of the reasons I had to run off the pitch in the second half. “He (Mourinho) wasn’t happy but there was nothing I could do about it really. Nature was calling! There was a chance when I wasn’t on the pitch but thankfully they didn’t score.” Mourinho was able to see the funny side of Dier’s toilet break after the match, and put the call of nature down to his superhuman effort. The 26-year-old was playing his second game in 48 hours, having also started Sunday’s Premier League draw with Newcastle. “With Eric you can imagine what happened,” Mourinho said. “For him to leave the pitch it was easy to imagine what happened. “I knew it, I was just pushing him to come back as soon as possible, because no more changes, and one player less is the consequence of something not human that he did, which was to play two matches completely dehydrated, tired, no energy in the muscles. “Of course he is not playing Thursday because I would definitely kill him.” Mourinho responded with humour when it was pointed out that rushing someone to go to the toilet can have the opposite effect. He replied: “The problem is that was not a pee.” The Spurs boss also later paid tribute to his player’s efforts on social media. Gary Lineker, who famously soiled himself during England’s 1990 World Cup match against Ireland, could not help but comment. He tweeted: “Strange scenes as @ericdier runs off the pitch to the dressing room, followed hastily by Mourinho. “Then Dier runs back out to resume playing. Presumably he needed the loo. Players just don’t shit on the pitch anymore. What’s wrong with them?” What’s going on here?! 👀 Eric Dier disappears off the pitch and Jose Mourinho marches off after him into the tunnel. Before long the Spurs midfielder is back out there in the middle.
