Spurs’ Boss Pochettino Unsure About Christian Eriksen’s Future with the Club
As the summer transfer window closure draws nearer, clubs will be pushing to close up deals faster now. Eriksen is one of those players that might make a move. Experts in football tips expect a move for the Danish midfielder.
With this known, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is unsure if Dannish midfielder Christian Eriksen has played his last match for Spurs as the rumours of his departure grows larger by the day.
The 27-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid since the last summer. And with the transfer window all set to close up on September 2, Madrid will be looking to put pressure on Spurs to sell the Denmark international for a huge fee.
The Danish midfielder, who is currently running on his last season on his contract with the club, was sub on in the second half of their 1-0 defeat by Newcastle on Sunday.
Speaking about his Eriksen, Mauricio Pochettino said via BBC: “We are waiting to see what happens.”
“It’s not an easy situation. We know this can unsettle the group but we know in 10 days it will finish [when the window closes] and things will be clear.”
The North London club was dominant throughout the game against the opponent but was only able to register two shots on target in the match.
“When you lose, the players who don’t play are the best,” added Pochettino. “With Christian we win and we lose a lot of games. I accept that the situation is like this. If we won 3-0 today no-one talks about different names.
“I cannot find excuses about the transfer window being open to justify that performance or the result. We cannot find the way to be solid and to have consistency for different reasons.
“I am going to be happy in 10 days after we play Arsenal [on 1 September] when the transfer window closes in Europe.”
Should Tottenham fail to agree on a deal for the Denmark international, he could be leaving the White Hart Lane as a free agent next summer when his contract with the club expires.
During the summer yransfer window, Spurs have been able to sign Tanguy Ndombele from Ligue 1 club Lyon for a club record of £53.8million and Giovani Lo Celso on loan from Real Betis.
Having held Manchester City to a draw last Sunday, Tottenham will be taking on their second test of the season in their next Premier League game against Arsenal in a North London derby. The team of football predictions predict a 1-1 draw in this absolute clash.
