the Rivalry between the red and white of north london is great.
it is also rare to praise the small eight kilometers back and forth between Arsenal and Tottenham, but the former's legendary ex-manager Arsène Wenger dare anyway the coat after tottenham's victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening.
And Christian Eriksen will not be overlooked by the frenchman. On the contrary.
- He is the outstanding player at Tottenham, and the concerns one may have for Tottenham is whether they can hold on to a player of the caliber.
Wenger was manager of Arsenal from 1996-2018 and have thus had ample opportunity to follow Christian Eriksen from close range, in the best English variety since the dane came from Ajax.
- I think he has developed extremely well. He can score, he can deliver on set pieces, he can provide the decisive ball, and he works very hard for his team.
- You will not find many players with so many qualities, he says to beIN Sports, where Arsène Wenger was used as an expert in connection with the first first knockout round in the Champions League.
Arsène Wenger, who have not yet found a new permanent job, even goes so far as to compare the dane with the winner of the prestigious Ballon d'or, which is awarded each year to the world's best footballer.
- He is the player that Modric was at Tottenham in the past, but he scores more goals.
Christian Eriksen, who celebrates his 27th birthday on Thursday, has scored 46 goals and put up to 57 of its kind in 194 Premier League matches since arriving at Tottenham in 2013. Last Sunday, when he scored his fifth goal of the season with the 2-0 against Leicester.
In Wednesday's clash against Dortmund and he was also for the presentation to 3-0 when he sent a precise corner kick into the head of Fernando Llorente.
For comparison, the performance of Luka Modric just 13 goals and 15 presentations in its 127 Premier League matches for Tottenham from 2008 to 2012 - that is to say, from a somewhat deeper role in central midfield.
