Christian Eriksen: Happy with life at Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has is a “Barcelona-type” of player and the Tottenham star could thrive at the Nou Camp, according to Brian Laudrup.  

The Denmark playmaker is enjoying a fine season for high-flying Spurs, having scored five goals and assisted eight as Mauricio Pochettino’s side established themselves as title contenders.

The emergence of Dele Alli has seen Eriksen moved around the Spurs attack but Laudrup believes his compatriot is good enough to play at the highest club level.

“I think it is very clear that Christian Eriksen has developed into an important player for Tottenham,” Laudrup told Omnisport.

How far can he go? He is a Barcelona-type of player but whether he can actually take it to Barcelona we will have to wait and see. Maybe [we wait] a year or two and then he will get to the age where he is at the top of his talent and capabilities.

“Tottenham right now are a top team in England but maybe he could go to another country like Spain and produce [performances] there, it would be interesting. He has certainly got the technical ability to do that.”

“He has got tremendous feet and great vision. He is not the quickest of players but his mind is very quick and that sets him apart from many young players.

“He is scoring goals as well, his free kicks are well known and he makes a lot of chances for his team-mates. For him and [Denmark team-mate] Kasper Schmeichel the world looks fantastic. What I have heard from both is they are two players who want to become better all the time.

“They are not satisfied with just the status quo and that is how you develop as a player. They have both got that and the sky is the limit.”
