in the Midst of a tough time can Christian Eriksen rejoice over one thing.
He is a part of The Guardian's annual list of the world's top male footballers.
eriksen's stunning spring with Tottenham have been enough to give the dane a place in the list for 2019, for since the start of the current season, it has been difficult for the dane.
Fynboen comes in at a 41.-space in front of the profiles, which, among other Paulo Dybala (42), Luka Modric (45), Paul Pogba (55) and Edinson Cavani (56).
'It has been a year of two halves for Christian Eriksen. At the end of last season alas he for Mauricio Pochettinos team that reached the Champions League final, and scored the second goal (after having made the assist on the first one) on Spurs' new stadium,' writes The Guardian.
'It looked like a sommerskifte for the formstærke Eriksen. But he ended up instead trapped in Tottenham (and the other way around), and his funklen has only shown itself in small sparks. He helped to steer Denmark through an awkward draw for the european championships in 2020 (where he mysteriously was the top scorer in the group).'
the Ranking is five places worse than in 2018, which is probably due to tottenham's poor start to the season with big problems in the Premier League.
It resulted in the firing of then head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
since then, the team got on the right track again after the employment of the triple Premier League winner José Mourinho as a replacement for Pochettino.
It is gone any better for Tottenham FC, but it has not just done eriksen's situation better.
He sat on the bench in virtually all the club's matches since Mourinhos tilngang, except for one: an insignificant Champions League match against Bayern Munich.
'He must improve if he is going to be just as high on the list for next season,' ending The Guardian.
Earlier this year, Christian Eriksen has rejected several offers from Tottenham to extend the contract, and in the summer he said also, that he would like to try something new.
Christian eriksen's contract with Tottenham expires on 30 June 2020.
It means that he is already from January free to sign with another club, which is not required to pay any transfer fee for him.
In this case, he must, however, first complete the season with Tottenham.
