Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has been talking to the media whilst on international duty with Denmark today.

The playmaker was named in the Denmark squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers beginning with the away trip to Gibraltar on Thursday.

Eriksen’s future at Tottenham has been the subject of intense speculation over the course of the summer after he revealed just days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool that he wanted to seek a new challenge away from the club (Ekstra Bladet).

He hinted during his previous revelation that he would welcome an approach from Real Madrid, however, a move to the Spanish giants failed to materialise.

The 27-year-old was named in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven for the North London derby yesterday afternoon and rewarded his manager by scoring the first goal in the 2-2 draw.

Eriksen was quizzed about his situation at Tottenham during Denmark’s training camp in Marbella.

He told TV 2 SPORT: “I can understand that it has a lot of interest for a lot of people, it has for me too. A lot has been written, but for me it is about focusing on the national team, where two very important matches await us.”

When asked why he is still at Spurs, he added: “There are a lot of good answers to that. But I don’t want to talk about speculation. I’m going to concentrate on playing football and playing on the national team. That’s what I want to talk about. So it will be a short interview.”

Pushed further by the interviewer of why he did not want to elaborate, he added: “Because no matter what I had to say, it would be a sensation one way or the other.

Eriksen was finally asked when he will open up in further detail: “We can talk about it in October, because then there is no more to write about.”
