He got the chance, but failed. Large.
Christian Eriksen is inside a fodboldmæssig crisis in Tottenham, where he under the new star-manager José Mourinho has been allocated to a status as a luxury-bænkevarmer.
Against Bayern Munich in the somewhat bland the last Champions League group match in the evening was the Danish landsholdsstjerne however, the chance from the start, together with the other marginalspillere in tottenham's squad.
But it was certainly not successful for Eriksen, as chasing a new club. He gets harsh criticism for its somewhat uninvolved effort in the 3-1-a defeat for the germans.
"Eriksen was a disappointment. He is going to have to tighten up, otherwise he shall not play," says the former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch in the studio at the uk's BT Sport.
He believes that José Mourinho after the match spared Eriksen know not to express criticism of the 27-year-old dane, who is set to leave Tottenham last summer, when his contract expires with the club after six years at Tottenham-jersey.
"I think he protected some of his players. He then certainly not happy," says Crouch with regard to Mourinhos comment after the match.
"It was a good match for me. I will not come up with conclusions, as it is too strong a word, but I will say that I've got important information. I will give you some positive examples because positive examples are easier to give," said the Tottenham manager in his usual passive-aggressive style, which he sent praise to individual players - but certainly not for Eriksen, which probably falls under the 'important information'category.
In The Mirror is the well-known reporter John Cross, who follows Tottenham close, is also critical in relation to Eriksen, which - in contrast to, for example, Ryan Sessegnon, who also got the chance delivered an uninspired effort in Munich.
"For others it was evening in no ways worth remembering. Christian Eriksen was better as the fight progressed, but in the long periods of time disappeared he out of the fight in the same rhythm with which he lets his contract run out. He should be sold to January," writes John Cross.
There is speculation as to whether Eriksen already leaving Tottenham in January. But it requires that there is a suitor who will pay a transfer deal for midtbanekreatøren.
Storlubber as Real Madrid, Inter, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United reported to be interested in Eriksen at rygtebørsen, but whether they are willing to chop and pay the up to 350 million kroner, which Tottenham require, in order to buy him in January, will the coming weeks reveal. Last night did the Danish midtbanestjerne at least not much to do to a potential buyer.
