Eriksen U-turn on the cards

After contract disputes between the Danish Football Association (DBU) and the players this week, Denmark looked set to field a team of lower league players and futsal stars.

After the entire original squad was sent home, a makeshift Denmark team lost 3-0 to Slovakia on Wednesday.

The Danish FA chairman has now hinted that the first team may return for their match against Wales on Sunday.

Moller said: “I will not rule out anything now. I’m a positive person and we are talking together. There is dialogue between the parties.

“The national team players want to play the match against Wales. There is a dispute about the commercial rights so we cannot just lean back in the chair and sign.”

It looks as if there is still a chance that the Danish first team stars could play a part in the UEFA Nations League game.

However, FIFA rules on releasing players and the fact that the stars haven’t trained ahead of the match may come into play even if the squad does sign their contract agreement.

The Danish stars, including Christian Eriksen, will be hoping to put the ugly dispute behind them as they look to build up towards a Euro 2020 campaign.

What are your thoughts on the matter? Should the DBU give the players what they believe they deserve?

  1. Regardless of the rights, wrongs and morals on this one – it’s great if Eriksen gets a rest during this international. break. He’s not looked himself yet this season.
