Mauricio Pochettino has recently stated that he is in high hopes that Christian Eriksen will ink a brand-new contract as the famous midfielder enjoys his last 18 months with Tottenham Hotspur. Dele Alli and Henry Kane already signed their long-term extensions with Tottenham Hotspur, and Mauricio Pochettino wants Christian Eriksen as he managed to score 10 goals, along with 10 assists, during the Premier League in the previous season. The famous midfielder has also been linked to both Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Mauricio Pochettino commented on the potential contract with Christian Eriksen stating, “Eriksen knowns exactly what we are doing, and we know that we are working extremely hard this year,” Pochettino stated. “The squad is working extremely hard to ensure we make the best decisions. Eriksen will undoubtedly take some time to ensure he is making the best decision for him.
Pochettino added that they are not worried about it and added,
“However, we are certainly not worried about it. In the world of football, I am never worried. However, I would prefer that Eriksen signs the brand-new contract, allowing him to spend loads of time with the Hotspurs. There’s no denying that it would be absolutely remarkable for both him and the squad. Christian Eriksen is a phenomenal player. When he was initially signed, everyone could see he had potential, an extremely diverse player at Ajax but still relatively young at the time. Tottenham managed to provide an incredible platform for him to further develop his skills. No one can deny that Tottenham and Eriksen was a fantastic mix. It’s for this reason that I sincerely hope he continues to play for Tottenham to fine tune his skills and quality even further.”
The EUFA National League and the Champions League
Christian Eriksen, who was unfortunately sidelined for almost a month due to abdominal problems earlier in the year, was primarily used for sparingly at Tottenham before the international break occurred, and Mauricio Pochettino wasn’t pleased at all that the famous midfielder started on both matches for Denmark during the EUFA Nations League.
“I believe looking after him prior to going to the national team was one of the best decisions I could make as he managed to start in the last ten days in two matches,” Mauricio Pochettino stated. “Playing 90 minutes against a difficult Crystal Palace squad, followed by 2 matches with the national team, it really too much for Eriksen.”
Mauricio Pochettino is going to be without 3 defenders against Chelsea on Saturday, with Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier, and Davinson Sanchez out of action as well as Mousa Dembele as a midfielder. Thankfully, Jan Vertonghen will be back in action after a hamstring injury that saw him miss a total of nine matches.
“There’s still one more day of training, but its fantastic news that he is back in the fold, Mauricio Pochettino stated.” During the last two weeks, Vertonghen trained well, and now we merely need to see if we can include him in the squad when we face Chelsea this weekend.
