Christian Eriksen has missed Tottenham Hotspur’s last four matches through injury, yet the latest update on the midfielder marks superb news for both the player and Spurs.
Eriksen’s agent told the Evening Standard that the Dane’s injury was “normal” and that he was doing everything he could to return “as soon as possible.”
The fears over Eriksen’s absence were fuelled by reports that Denmark’s manager had referred to the injury as “chronic.”
However, Eriksen’s agent told the Standard that these concerns were false and simply a result of a mistranslation and the abdominal injury because of commonplace fatigue.
These are immensely encouraging reports for Spurs, as the club have sorely missed the Danish play-maker in his absence. They suffered a debilitating loss to Barcelona in the Champions League, barely ground out victories against Premier League bottom-dwellers Huddersfield and Cardiff, and scraped through to the next around of the League Cup on penalties versus Watford.
A stretch of four disappointing matches without Eriksen revealed how valuable he is to the Tottenham attack, and news of his swift return to full fitness will certainly be welcomed in north London.
After the international break, Spurs face off against the likes of West Ham, PSV, and Manchester City— crucial matches where Eriksen must play a vital role.
