Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has bemoaned the situation surrounding Christian Eriksen. The Dane is yet to resolve his situation with the Lilywhites and has just another year left in his contract.
He has been linked with a move to Real Madrid but nothing has happened on that front so far, with previous reports hinting at a bid last week. Pochettino believes that the situation isn’t the best one for all the concerned parties as it is not at the place they expected it to be.
“It’s not the best situation for him [Eriksen] and for everyone,” the Argentine was quoted as saying by The Guardian.

“It is not what I think the club or the player expected [it] to be. You cannot put a finger on the problem. You try to minimalise the problem, try to treat the situation. This is an important player who needs to help the team with his performances."
He then went on to state that he is always open to helping the club when it comes to making decisions while also adding that he takes into consideration what the best possible outcome could be for the player and the club.
“I am always open to help the club and to help the decision of Daniel [Levy, the chairman]. I know really well that decisions like this are not easy but I always try to be in the position to take the best benefit for the club. And for the player, too. The most important thing is to try to take the best decision for both sides,” Mauricio Pochettino concluded.
