According to the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Mauricio Pochettino needs to keep Christian Eriksen in order to win titles this season.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has vowed to win a trophy soon.

But in order to do so, he will need to keep Christian Eriksen at the club.

At least this is what former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes.

“’I need to lift a trophy,’ said Mauricio Pochettino on the eve of this season. ‘Carabao Cup, FA Cup, Premier League or Champions League.’ If Spurs are serious about silverware then Christian Eriksen must stay,” Redknapp was quoted by Goal.

“Aston Villa were digging in with a 1-0 lead on Saturday when Pochettino turned to his bench.”

“Eriksen came on and you thought, ‘I’ve seen this film before’. You knew Spurs would win,” he added.

“The Dane dictates play and Tottenham know it. When the ball was at the back, they looked to get it to Eriksen.”

“When it was in midfield, they looked for Eriksen. He was only on the pitch for 26 minutes but no forward created more chances,” he said.

“Eriksen is in a contract standoff and Daniel Levy could sell him before the window shuts across Europe on September 2. That would be a mistake. If you want to be successful, keep Eriksen.”
