Slow start for Tottenham not down to player unrest, says Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen says Tottenham's poor form is not a result of transfer speculation

Football news - Christian Eriksen: Exit rumours no bearing on Tottenham's poor form

Christian Eriksen concedes he is going through the toughest spell of his Tottenham career but insists it has nothing to do with the rumours that surrounded his future during the transfer window.

The club have already dropped to 13 points behind league leaders Liverpool, whilst they have not won away from home in the Premier League since January.

The Denmark worldwide is in the final year of his contract and is not expected to sign a new deal, meaning he can talk to clubs outside the United Kingdom about a possible move next season on January 1 2020.

"It doesn't matter at all".

The former Southampton boss is beginning to come under pressure for the first time since he moved to north London in 2014, although he continues to enjoy a positive relationship with chairman Daniel Levy. "Everyone is professional and in all clubs there is talk of players going away", Eriksen told Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet.

The North London side have had a awful start to the season after the highs of 2018/19 where they made it to the UEFA Champions League final, only to lose to Liverpool.

'If I took all the rumours to me, I would float on a cloud. "It does not affect me what is written".

Eriksen is one of those who will be made available when the market reopens in January, with the Denmark worldwide having no intention of signing a new deal at the club.

"It's definitely my hardest time right now at Tottenham", Eriksen told Danish news outlet Ekstra Bladet while on worldwide duty.

"Expectations for us are at a completely different level now".

"We must learn from defeats to be able to exceed our limits and that begins by accepting that you don't always win and that the opponent also works hard and makes merits".

"We as players must try to keep all the negative things completely out". We can't close the matches, even though we are ahead.
