Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Christian Eriksen is a complete player

The Danish star has received praised from his manager at Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to London 24 about Danish international Christian Eriksen.

The play-maker has featured 35 times for Spurs this season, scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists to date, and he remains an integral part of a side fighting for both domestic and European glory in the months ahead.

Tottenham are currently second in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Leicester City with 11 games remaining, and they will face Borussia Dortmund in the last-16 of the Europa League.

If Pochettino’s side is to lift a trophy or two in May Eriksen is likely to be key to their efforts, and the Spurs boss has hailed the 24-year-old’s impact thus far.

“I’m very happy with him and very pleased with his performances so far and the way he behaves,” Pochettino told London 24. “For me he’s a top player and a top man, too.

“I think he’s a complete player and he’s a player I like that I think fits with my philosophy.”

Tottenham’s next match comes on Wednesday evening when they travel to Upton Park to take on London rivals West Ham United.

The Hammers have been in fine form themselves this season so it is a match that could go either way, but Tottenham will be hoping they can replicate their 4-1 win from earlier in the season when Eriksen provided two assists in a sparkling performance.
