In three years with Saint-Étienne, Platini won only 1 Ligue 1 title in the 1980/1981 season.

The biography of Christian Eriksen – the silent conductor of Tottenham (Part 2)

During his time with Ajax, Eriksen has grown up and strengthened greatly. After three seasons in the Dutch team, he won three national football championship titles with this team. On 30 August 2013, club Tottenham Hotspur announced that they had completed the Eriksen transfer from Ajax in a deal believed to be worth £ 11 million or € 12.45 million.

Eriksen made his new club debut against Norwich City on September 14, 2013. In this match, he created a goal to help Tottenham achieve a 2-0 final victory over the opponent. On September 19, 2013, Eriksen scored his first goal for Tottenham with a stunning long shot in a 3–0 victory over Troms IL in the Europa League.

A week later, in a match against strong rival Manchester United, he scored a big goal with an assist for Emmanuel Adebayor and raised the score to 2-0 to bring Tottenham’s 2-1 victory.

Since playing for Tottenham, Eriksen has always played a vital role in the squad of “Rooster”. He is always on the list of players with the most assists in the Premier League.

Besides, the ability to score from unexpected long-range shots is always the forte of the Danish midfielder. At the age of 27, what Eriksen lacks right now, perhaps just trophies.

Since playing for Tottenham, Eriksen has always played a vital role in the squad of “Rooster”

The style of playing

Eriksen stands out for his technique but that is not all that remains in the mind of his teammates and coach. He always knows how to put the interests of the team first, this has been Eriksen’s guiding principle until now.

The number 10 of the Danish team is not the type of player willing to aggressively take the ball into the opponent’s defenders and pass one after another in a meaningless way or flamboyant legs. He will still keep the ball in his feet and over, but that is to serve the general style of the team.

Also, Eriksen knows how to regulate, move to create space, when to fast or slow kick, when to pass or shoot. Watching mindful players like Eriksen always gives the audience a sense of peace because they know how to make the right decisions at the right time with high probability. Eriksen’s only downside is probably his weak mentality when he has to play big matches.
