How Eriksen’s contract delay could benefit Spurs

After the disappointing result against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night it feels as if there has been a cloud of gloom over White Hart Lane since.

One of the players who came closest to getting on the scoresheet in the match was Christian Eriksen who has been rumoured to be close to signing a new deal at Tottenham for a number of months.

According to Squawka, the Dane is holding off putting pen to paper on a new £60,000-a-week deal which could commit him to the club until 2021 until his boss Mauricio Pochettino also signs a fresh contract.

Pochettino has three years to run on his existing deal at the Lane but has been heavily linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid following his impressive spell at the helm in N17.

There is absolutely no doubt that we need Daniel Levy to get the chequebook out to ensure that Pochettino remains at our club, otherwise all of our potential for the future will be back to square one.

If it means the likes of Eriksen are digging their heels in to get the deal done, we say it’s good news for Levy to be under pressure to ensure that this summer is not another one experiencing loss of key personnel.  After losing the likes of Bale, Modric and Van der Vaart in previous seasons, it’s time that we built on our strengths, rather than bolstering those who we aspire to be.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Regarding Alli’s altercation with Yacob, really think the WBA slug should serve a1 match ban for his part/ parts in the act. He continually harassed and antagonised Alli from the off , as if he had been instructed to do his best to get Alli sent off, being as though he wasn’t anywhere close in skill levels!Unfortunately Dele took the bait, and can’t support his response, pity the ref hadn’t helped at some stage though. Can have a knock on effect on our last 3 games now , need 4 points from the 9 on offer to keep 2 and COYS
