Tottenham's Christian Eriksen full of praise for Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

The Denmark international has stated that Alex Pritchard has a bright future with the North London club.

Christian Eriksen knows a thing about talent given his significant abilities with the ball at his feet.

However, the Danish playmaker has pinpointed another Tottenham star that could well be a real star in the North London club’s first team.

The former Ajax midfielder has been singing the praises of Alex Pritchard and admits that he has been impressed with the 21-year-old since he returned to White Hart Lane from a loan spell at Swindon.

"He’s a really good player and he made a real impression on me in the first few days he was back at the club," Eriksen told Spurs’ official website.

"He’s very skilful, good on the ball. He didn’t get much of a chance on his debut, a short time, but he’s really talented. He’s one for the future, for sure."

Pritchard scored six goals in 35 appearances for Swindon over the course of his temporary spell at the club, before making his senior Tottenham debut against Aston Villa in a 3-0 win.

The attacker has three caps to his name for England under-20’s and will hope to follow in the footsteps of Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane by breaking into the Spurs first-team next season.
