Christian Eriksen has taken a dig at Tottenham by insisting that he feels he has a much better chance of winning silverware at Inter Milan than he did in North London.
Eriksen spent six and a half years at Tottenham after arriving from Ajax in the summer of 2013. He played 309 games for the Lilywhites and scored 69 goals (Wikipedia).
For the vast majority of that time, he was the man pulling the strings in the Spurs midfield and built a reputation as one of the most dangerous midfielders in the Premier League.
While he helped Spurs mount multiple title challenges and even made it to the Champions League final in 2019, the team failed to win a trophy during his time at the club.
The Danish international was sold to Inter Milan in January with just six months left to run on his deal with Spurs and he has admitted since making the move to Italy that he felt like a black sheep at Spurs (BBC).
Now the 27-year-old has taken another sly dig at his former club by talking about how long it’s been since he’s won a trophy.
Speaking to Sky in Italy, the former Spurs star said: “There’s a big chance of winning a trophy here or a bigger chance than where I was of course.
“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.”

It is a shame that Pochettino’s team didn’t manage to win a single trophy despite being arguably the best team in the country at least for the whole of 2016 and 2017. The players ultimately have to take the blame for failing to get over the line as we lost too many semifinal and final matches, which indicates that there was a mental block.
