Christian Eriksen is a central attacking midfielder (CAM) and joined Spurs in 2013. Since then he has been an influential and consistent performer for Tottenham Hotspur.
After impressing in a junior capacity in his native home of Denmark, Christian signed for Ajax in 2008. He totalled 161 performances for the Dutch club and found the net 33 times. Eriksen’s impressive stint at the club saw him decorated with both domestic and foreign accolades. Aside from securing the Eredivisie title with Ajax three years in a row between 2011 and 2013, Eriksen was also awarded: Dutch Football Talent of the Year, Ajax Talent of the Year, and Danish Talent of the Year. In the same year, Eriksen was called up for the UEFA Euro U21 Danish squad.
Eriksen’s first season at Spurs was a promising one, bagging 7 goals and 8 assists in 23 appearances in the Premier League. He built on his goal tally in the second season, scoring 12 goals. Eriksen has been noted for the flair with which he scores his goals as well as his instrumental role in midfield; it’s almost as if players rely on him to perform as well as he does. He was the only Spurs player to play in every single Premier League game of that season.
Last season was one of his most impressive. In all competitions, Christian featured 48 times and found the net 12 times; of those 48, 36 were Premier League starts. In his five seasons at Spurs, Eriksen has had 44 assists, and it is that fact that is the true representation of what sort of player he really is. He can read the game, pull the strings, and create the chance. Eriksen was named the 2017 Danish Football Player of the Year; this was the record-equalling fourth time he has been awarded this prestigious international accolade.
Christian Eriksen made his senior debut for Denmark in 2010 against Austria; he was the youngest player to attend the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
