Tottenham latest, Eriksen happy at club, former player links problems back to Redknapp departure

Christian Eriksen and Soldado Spurs

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Tuesday evening

Midfielder Christian Eriksen seems determined to stay at White Hart Lane no matter where the club finishes this season.

Though they closed the gap to fourth place to five points with a 5-1 win over Sunderland last night, the chances of Tottenham achieving Champions League qualification for next season look slim.

The Dane is quoted in several papers, saying: “For me the feeling I have at the club isn’t dependent on being in the Champions League, I’m happy here and am looking forward to the future.”

Former defender Justin Edinburgh believes the problems the clubs has stems from the sacking of Harry Redknapp in 2012.

Edinburgh told TalkSport that his former club ‘always seem to press the self-destruct button’.

He said: “We had the best squad in I’d seen at Tottenham for 20-odd years. Everyone was playing for him, we were producing some good results and we got into the Champions League. They started searching for things they didn’t need to.”

On the future of Tim Sherwood, whose days seem numbered in charge of the club, Edinburgh added: 

“I feel Tottenham should have given Tim a crack at it. He’s straight talking, some people like that and some don’t, but I don’t think it hurts sometimes."

Harry Kane has reflected on getting his first Premier League goal for Spurs in last night’s 5-1 win over Sunderland.

On a night dominated by speculation over the future of Head Coach Tim Sherwood, Kane’s strike put Spurs in front in the second half.

He’s quoted in London24, saying: “I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to get the start. It was great to get the goal and hopefully I can push on and get a few more.

“If you can do it in the Premier League you can do it pretty much anywhere. Hopefully I will get a few more chances and a few more goals. It’s great playing with Ade, he’s a world-class player and everyone can see that.”
