Since joining Tottenham in the summer of 2013 from Ajax for £11 million, Christian Eriksen has been an integral part of rise of the Lilywhites from also rans to regular challenges domestically and even on the European stage.
It is twinged with regret then that it seems the club and Eriksen’s relationship appears to be souring as the Dane’s contract runs down and there seems to be no silver lining as it appears Eriksen’s future lays elsewhere.
New manager Jose Mourinho has not held back in his assessment of the Eriksen situation either making it quite clear the former Ajax star can expect plenty of time on the sidelines as the gaffer looks to those players who are sticking with Spurs for the long term.
That attitude from Mourinho is likely to down well fans as the long term is clearly on the Portuguese superstar’s mind.
Already a number of fans seem resigned to losing Eriksen and seemingly happily see the 27-year-old get out of the club sooner rather than later with some saying they hope Mourinho continues to drop Eriksen and that he is then sold in January.
Barring a quite remarkable turnaround, Christian Eriksen’s time in North London will becoming to an end sooner rather than later in poor circumstances which is a shame considering the undoubted contribution he has made to Tottenham’s turnaround.
No to Zlatan
Eriksen may almost certain to be leaving Tottenham but one NOT coming in is Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 38-year-old has a very close relationship with Jose Mourinho with the pair having worked together at both Inter Milan and Manchester United with respect high among the two.
Following Mourinho’s appointment last week, it was quickly rumoured that Jose would be keen to bring Zlatan back to the Premier League but he quickly quashed those rumours by saying he already has the ‘best striker in England’ referring to Harry Kane of course.
