Christian Eriksen opens up on Tottenham Hotspur exit

Former Spurs star Christian Eriksen recently joined Italian giants Interm Milan for £17million in the January transfer window.

“I did get the blame for a lot of stuff, for being the bad guy. I read I was the bad person in the changing room, that ever since I said I wanted to leave, it was no good me being there.”

Speaking in his first interview since his move, the midfielder admitted that Spurs were still suffering a hangover from the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.

The midfielder spoke about the uncertainty surrounding his departure from Spurs and the awkwardness involved in believing every game would be his last. He still made 27 appearances for Tottenham this season.

Eriksen admitted to having talked with Manchester United regarding a summer transfer worth £50 million. The midfielder dismisses it as an easy way out in his look for a new challenge.

Eriksen has also hinted at his future being controlled by what chairman Daniel Levy wants and his lack of choice in the matter apart from going about his job professionally.
