It was an exciting time for Spurs fans this week as the Champions League group stage draw was conducted, revealing who the club would face at the start of their European journey.
Tottenham were put in a group with Bayern Munich, Olympiakos, and Red Star Belgrade for the 2019/20 competition, which made a nice change from the group of death they were dealt last year.
Spurs were pitted against Barcelona, PSV, and Inter Milan in the 2018/19 season and barely escaped out of the group in second place.
However, the club then beat Borussia Dortmund, Man City, and Ajax over two legs to reach the Champions League final for the first time ever.
One man who certainly seemed excited for the season ahead was Christian Eriksen, who posted to social media straight after the draw.
This raised a few eyebrows considering the fact that, as it stands, Eriksen would be leaving the club on a free in the summer of 2020.
Naturally, Pochettino was asked about the Instagram post today (Football London): “It’s difficult to read social media. If you pay attention to it, be careful. I’m not talking about in this case Christian Eriksen. Social media, it’s so dangerous how the people read the message. You opened the door to talk a little bit about social media, I’m not talking about Christian. I think it’s fantastic that Christian is excited, like other players, to have the opportunity to play Champions League again. But we will see what happens. A few days until the window closes and I hope all goes well for our interests, the team and our club.”
Christian Eriksen’s reaction to Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League Group-stage draw doesn’t seem to indicate that of a player who wants to leave Spurs anytime soon …. ??
