Eric Dier of England has responded to those who view footballers as heavy, spoiled brats.
The 28-year-old Tottenham star told the podcast: “Judging how football is played I don’t have a problem with a lot.
“But I have a bigger problem with the way footballers are seen.
“A 22-year-old boy could do one stupid thing and he would turn into a snowball.
“That doesn’t mean he’s right. If he did it a second time, I’d be like, ‘You idiot.'”
“But it’s normal for people at this age to make mistakes.”
Dyer, who speaks Portuguese and has raised money for a dining app, said many of the players were smart and interesting.
He added, “You look at their cars – but eight years ago they were the most disciplined, the most hard-working, the most committed.”
