Is Christian Eriksen going to be at Tottenham next season? Every single fibre of my being says no, he will not.
Can I blame him? The man has seen his contract out, given Tottenham some of his best years, not created a fuss, and wants to pursue something different. He has every right to do that.
What many Spurs fans had a problem with was that it seemed as if Eriksen wasn’t putting too much effort in at the start of the season, perhaps knowing that he wouldn’t be around much longer.
However, I would not stick my neck out and say that he was just in some bad form. The reason I say this is that he has performed admirably over the past month or so.
He is resigned to a bit-part role, I assume because Mourinho knows he wants to leave at the end of the season. However, every time he comes on, he seems to make a big difference.
Today, Eriksen actually started the game, and he was Tottenham’s man of the match by a long way. He covered ground, he did his defensive work, he pulled the strings from deep, he stepped up and put a free-kick into the top corner to get his side back into it. The man was everywhere!
Whatever happens in the next six months, he still clearly cares about the club and is doing his best to leave on a high. He has my respect for that.
