Denmark and Tottenham have been dealt a major blow with the news that star midfielder Christian Eriksen could miss the crucial Christmas period after suffering an injury while on international duty. Denmark were recently playing against in a friendly match and Eriksen suffered a horrible injury, which not only saw him get substituted in the match but could also potentially make him miss the next few weeks for Tottenham. This is a very crucial time where Tottenham need all the players fit and ready due to the number of games that will come for the Premier league outfit.
Eriksen started his Tottenham career in a slow fashion, but he has been quick to respond to the requirements of the Premier league. He has been one of their star performers in recent weeks. The midfielder has been a transfer target for some of the biggest clubs in the world, but Tottenham managed to secure him for just £ 11 million. Denmark national team manager Olsen confirmed after the match that the midfielder’s injury does not look good.
It is expected that he will be out for the next six weeks, which will mean that he will miss the crucial Christmas period matches. Tottenham are likely to demand a compensation from FIFA for this injury since it happened while on international duty.
“We don’t know if he’s out for four or six weeks or how long it will take. It’s bad for him at a new club,” said the Denmark national team manager. It was recently revealed that Denmark would play against England in a friendly match at Wembley. This will be one of the final friendly matches for both teams before they head into the World Cup. Olsen is likely to use his full strength squad for this encounter rather than his substitutes.
