The mooted return of Christian Eriksen to Spurs is set to become an increasingly tortuous business and Football London last night published a piece allegedly providing the truth. The bare-bones being that Eriksen’s agents are seeking to get the Dane back into Tottenham, and that Mourinho isn’t convinced.
The truth my friends, was published here some 3-months ago, when The Boy Hotspur told you that Eriksen wasn’t wanted back at Spurs. In that piece, the killer line was, ‘The Boy Hotspur understands from a source close to the club that media speculation about a return of Christian Eriksen to Tottenham is fiction.’
Of course, the agents of Eriksen have been in contact with Spurs, it is my understanding that they have been in touch with just about anyone who’ll take a call, in order to scramble their boy out of Italy.
Indeed, it is crucial to retain any semblance of credibility for the agents that it looks as if Levy would even consider a return to N17. Mourinho is highly unlikely to publicly debase Christian, so the longer the suggestion of a return can be kept alive, the more hope there might be of someone else stepping in and ending the Inter nightmare.
Add to this, we have the mumblings of fans with short memories seeking greater entertainment and pitches for Eriksen providing a creative spark start to sound plausible. But they are not plausible. The Dane is 29 next month, and it’s all well and good saying that he became poor with us because he didn’t want to get injured, but serving up the same lacklustre stuff for Conte raises serious concerns.
In conclusion, people who go back to their exes always manage to overlook the most appalling aspects of their past so readily, and people who want their inside information first, read The Boy Hotspur.
