Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Christian Eriksen’s comments

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react after Christian Eriksen told BBC Sport that he felt like the black sheep at Spurs after disclosing his desire to leave the club last summer.

Spurs fans may have hoped that they had seen the last of the news concerning Eriksen. His future seemed to be a talking point for a long time before he finally sealed a move to Inter Milan in January.

The Guardian reported in June last year that Eriksen had suggested that he wanted a new challenge ahead of the final year of his contract at Tottenham.

The Dane would not get his move last summer. And that meant that the speculation seemed to continue on a regular basis throughout the opening months of this season.

So there seemed to be a real sense of relief from all parties when his move to San Siro was confirmed last month. And Eriksen has admitted that his final months with Tottenham were not easy and he felt like a scapegoat for the club’s problems.

“If you have a short contract, you will be the black sheep,” he told BBC Sport. “Of course, I did the interview. I was very honest. I felt I had to be honest. I didn’t want to hide like a lot of players do. Everyone is different. I was honest. I wanted to say it out loud.

“I did get the blame for a lot of stuff, for being the bad guy. I read I was the bad person in the changing room, that ever since I said I wanted to leave, it was no good me being there.”

Unfortunately for Eriksen, there are a number of Spurs fans who do not agree that he was treated unfairly.

Several have insisted that his desire to leave was not the major issue. However, the big problem was that his performances gave off the impression that he did not want to stay.

His form during the latter stages of his Tottenham spell has been slammed. A couple of fans have pointed to how Eden Hazard performed for Chelsea in the months before his move to Real Madrid as an example of how a player should conduct themselves when they hope to leave.

Here is how some of the supporters reacted to Eriksen’s comments…
