Reports emerged yesterday suggesting that Christian Eriksen’s abdominal injury could be a long-term issue, however, his agent has moved quickly to suggest that comments about the playmaker’s fitness may have been lost in translation.
The Dane’s national team boss Age Hareide was quoted by the media as suggesting that the Tottenham Hotspur playmaker’s injury is chronic and long-term which left Spurs fans fearing for the worst.
The injury has caused Eriksen to have missed Tottenham’s last four matches in all competitions and the player’s recent absence which has now been downplayed by his representative Martin Schoots to try and calm fears.
Schoots has instead claimed that Hareide was referring to Eriksen’s recent absence rather than a reference to the severity of the injury.
He told the Evening Standard: “Christian has no chronic injuries — nobody has said that,” Schoots said. “He just has an injury related to some fatigue and, for that reason, he is having some rest. That is normal because otherwise it would not heal.
“Somebody has not translated well. Christian is doing everything to be back as soon as possible.”
