Christian Eriksen says that he wishes his future could be determined”like in Football Manager” after failing to secure a movement away from Tottenham.
The Denmark international, who scored Spurs’ opener into their 2-2 derby draw with Arsenal on Sunday, admitted during the summer that he was contemplating leaving the club this summer in order to”try something new”.
Eriksen, that had been connected with a transfer to Real Madrid, is at the last year of his contract and will be liberated to sign a pre-contract arrangement in January 1 with European clubs.
“I really wish I could decide just like in Football Manager, but sadly I can not,” Eriksen told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet.
When asked if the comments he made concerning his future were a mistake, Eriksen stated:”It wasn’t. Nonetheless, it’s soccer and you don’t know what happens in soccer. Many items always come into play.
“To me it is not tricky to clear my mind. I do not read much of what’s written.
“And now I’ve been involved for many years, in which there have been a number of rumours every year. However, it’s apparent that it has been fierce this year since my contract is going to expire.
“I understand a lot of people are considering where I always really wish to playwith. That’s how it is. This is in case you have done the way it is at a club. There will always be rumours.”
