Acording to Age Hareide, he doesn’t speak to the players about their club situations, and he expects everything from them representing their country.

Denmark is set to host Ireland tomorrow night in Matchday 3 of the EURO 2020 Group D qualifiers.

And for Danish boss Age Hareide, the club situation player Christian Eriksen is going through, won’t affect his plans with the national team.

Currently, there is speculation about where Eriksen will leave Tottenham Hotspur if he leaves at all.

“I don’t speak to the players about their club situations,” Hareide told RTÉ Sport.

“We have a good relationship with the players and it would be a mix-up if I try to talk about that.”

“I have to concentrate on the national team,” he added.

“Christian loves to play football and I think his focus is on that. He also loves to play for Denmark and that is the main thing for me.”

“He has done well for Tottenham and we had so many special occasions [with him] playing in our side,” the coach said.

“But he has done his job for Tottenham and Denmark, so we have to wait and see what’s happening.”

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel spoke of the game against Ireland, and the comments made by Thomas Delaney saying their football is “primitive.”

“I don’t know of any verbal sniping, it’s news to me. I would never say anything disrespectful towards fellow professionals,” he said.

“If you saw my comments after we played Ireland in Dublin, they were more than respectful.”
