Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has insisted he won’t be looking to leave White Hart Lane if the club fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Despite returning to winning ways with a comprehensive 5-1 victory against Sunderland, Tim Sherwood’s men remain five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, with Everton four points ahead of Spurs with a game in hand.
While a number of last summer’s signings have failed to live up to their sizeable transfer fees, Eriksen has been one of Spurs’ stand-out players this season.
The Denmark international was the man of the match in the demolition of Gus Poyet’s struggling side, scoring a goal and setting up two others in the 5-1 victory that kept Sunderland bottom of the Premier League table.
With Tim Sherwood all but a certainty to be fired at the end of the season, it appears likely that Eriksen and his Spurs team-mates will be playing for a new manager next year. Despite the prospect of not playing Champions League football for another season, Eriksen has made it clear he is happy in North London and firmly focused on his future at White Hart Lane.
