Tottenham and England star Eric Dier has revealed that he believes the club should be aiming onwards and upwards after last season’s third place finish.
Spurs were very much a dominant force in the Premier League title race during 2015/16, challenging Leicester for the trophy up until the last month, but unfortunately, draws at West Brom and Chelsea put an end to any real chance of catching Claudio Ranieri’s men.
No one would have blamed manager Mauricio Pochettino for either leaving the London club for a gargantuan side had the opportunity arose, but the former Espanyol and Southampton coach remained firm in his desire to take his charges to even dizzier heights.
The club’s impressive performances were down to a number of key factors and influential players, of which Dier was certainly one.
It can definitely be argued that the one-time Sporting Lisbon star was the sole player to return from the European Championships in France with his dignity still intact.
And following on from a hugely eye-catching campaign, Dier has urged his Tottenham team-mates to push on and finally win that elusive Premier League title.
“As a club and a group of players with this manager we are on a natural progression,” he said to Sky Sports’ Rob Dawson.
“We are looking to just keep improving and keep that curve going upwards. That’s our aim.
“We’ve never put a target on it we just want to keep on improving and upping our level. The way we work I’m sure we will.”
