Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino says he “doesn’t know” if Christian Eriksen will play again for the club. Following continued speculation between the player and Real Madrid.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has opened up about the Christian Eriksen saga…

“It’s not an easy situation. We know this can unsettle the group but we know in ten days it will finish (the transfer window) and things will be clear.”

Spurs controlled the tempo of their game with Newcastle for long spells, without creating many clear cut chances.

“When you lose, the players who don’t play are the best,” added Pochettino. “With Christian we win and we lose a lot of games. I accept that the situation is like this. If we won 3-0 today no-one talks about different names.

“I cannot find excuses about the transfer window being open to justify that performance or the result. We cannot find the way to be solid and to have consistency for different reasons.”

“I am going to be happy in ten days after we play Arsenal. When the transfer window closes in Europe.”

Christian Eriksen has been the target of Spanish giants Real Madrid and with the player continuing to come off the bench to make appearances. It is expected a deal will be done shortly. Especially considering the Danish midfielder’s contract with Spurs is set to expire next summer.
