Christian Eriksen has revealed that one of the main factors why he decided to leave Tottenham Hotspur is to win trophies.

The Dane admitted that he believes he has a greater chance of winning silverware at Inter Milan after referencing his last taste of glory came during his time at Ajax.

Tottenham have failed to win a competitive trophy since 2008 when they beat Chelsea in the League Cup final at Wembley in extra time courtesy of a Jonathan Woodgate header.

Eriksen came close to winning a trophy in North London on more than one occasion after losing the Champions League final, the League Cup in 2015 and two occasions where the club came up short in the race for the Premier League title.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, the 27-year-old completed a £16.9million move to the Serie A giants in the final few days of the January transfer window.

“There’s a big chance of winning a trophy here or a bigger chance than where I was of course,” Eriksen told Sky in Italy (as translated by Sky Sports).

“The Champions League final was a very bad day, we lost which you don’t want to remember.

“I’m here to win and start something new. The last time I won something was at Ajax so it’s many years ago. I still remember the feeling so I want to achieve it here as well.”
