Christian Eriksen is pulling the strings in midfield at Tottenham Hotspur. The Danish national coach Hareide praises the 26-year-old in the highest notes.
Denmark coach Age Hareide compared Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen with Real Madrid midfielder and ex-track player Luka Modric and predicted a bright future for the Danish international.
“He would be a star at Real or Barca,” Hareide told Danish football magazine Tipsbladet, “When I look at the players in the central midfield of Real Madrid or Barcelona, no one is stronger than Christian”.
For the Danish national coach, Eriksen is a player who can adapt to all possible situations. Moreover, he is exactly the type of player who develops further when he plays with stronger players.
The 64-year-old sees a difference in quality compared to former Tottenham player Modric: “Luka Modric went from Tottenham to Real Madrid and did not play as well as Eriksen.
In addition, Modric’s departure from Madrid in the summer should be within the realms of possibility. In the current season, the Croatian playmaker scored only a meagre two goals and was only involved five times as the originator of Real goals.
Eriksen is in an impressive form this season and has also demonstrated his class in the Champions League. The 26-year-old stands for the Spurs across all competitions with eleven goals and ten templates.
Finally, Eriksen expressed his satisfaction with his situation at Tottenham. The club is nevertheless prepared to hold contractual talks with other clubs.
