Tottenham’s ‘Special One’ Eriksen Raves: ‘All the players have long-term contracts’

Christian Eriksen scored a fantastic hat-trick during the international break to send Denmark to the World Cup finals

Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen is on cloud nine, literally! Having guided his side to the 2018 World Cup by breaking the hearts of the Republic of Ireland, the Spurs playmaker is enjoying life in the fast lane.

Ahead of another crucial bout – this time for his club, as we face bitter rivals Arsenal in the North London derby this weekend. Eriksen spoke to the Sky Sports about various things, including how manager Mauricio Pochettino has transformed the club.

It has been over four years since the 25-year-old arrived at the White Hart Lane. There was pressure on him from day one because he arrived as one of the seven new signings unleashed by Daniel Levy to offset the departure of Gareth Bale.

Despite so much pressure and constant vigilance, Eriksen steered clear of any controversies and has carved a niche for himself. Now, to say that Eriksen has cemented his place in the first XI is not out of place.

Eriksen is now one of the longest-serving players at the club right now and is a poster boy of the remarkable transition that Pochettino has brought to the club.

The Argentine took charge of the team who were 5th and at a time when were considered to be ‘also-rans’. We have improved by leaps and bounds and are now consistent in the top three every season.

Eriksen is quietly pulling the strings in the midfield and is gearing up for another stellar season for the Lilywhites. This season is already shaping up as an outstanding season for the playmaker who has missed just 5 Premier League games out of 125 under Pochettino.

And, he feels that the Argentine has taken the club to new highs.

“He has given stability not only to me but to the whole club,” says Eriksen. “That’s the main thing for a player. You feel comfortable, you feel aware of everything around you and you don’t think about anything other than football when you’re on the pitch.”

“All the players have long-term contracts. They feel safe being here. It’s why you commit your future to a place like this.”

Pochettino has always described Eriksen as the club’s ‘special one’ and that is not off the mark. The Argentine is on the verge of creating his legacy at the club.

Eriksen has created 361 chances for the club since August 2013, which is slightly lesser than that of Mesut Ozil. Let’s hope he stays at the club for a long time and helps us win trophies!
