An article on the clubs website says Christian Eriksen was last night (Saturday 6th January) named Danish Football Player of the Year for a record-equalling fourth time.

The midfielder was rewarded for another fantastic year in 2017, in which he excelled on the pitch for Spurs and played a decisive role in Denmarks demolition of the Republic of Ireland in the play offs and sealing their qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Christian previously picked up the accolade from the Danish Football Association in 2013, 2014 and 2015, he actually became the first player in Danish history to win it three years in a row and Christian has now drawn level with Bayern Munich, Fiorentina and Rangers legend Brian Laudrup for the highest amount of times one player has taken the trophy in his career.

The article adds that the award is Danish football’s most prestigious individual honour and the equivalent of the PFA prize in England, the award has also previously been won by all-time greats Michael Laudrup, Morten Olson, ex-Spur Allan Nielsen and Peter Schmeichel.

Former goalkeeper Schmeichel’s son Kasper, also a stopper, won it in 2016 after helping Leicester City lift the Premier League title.
