Tottenham Hotspur fans went into meltdown this week as Denmark gaffer Age Hareide made journalist’s dreams come true when it came to a pre-prepared headline as he spoke about Christian Eriksen.

The 26-year-old hasn’t featured for Spurs since our Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion back on September 22nd after succumbing to injury, and the Danish gaffer caused a stir when talking about his international squad for the October break, especially when it came to Eriksen.

Speaking to outlet Canal9 he explained.

“Christian has a problem with his abdominal muscle, and Tottenham have reported that it is of long-term nature. Such an injury can be chronic, and it is true that Tottenham are worried.”

Such few words – such a massive reaction, namely in response to the word ‘chronic’ and the claim that Tottenham have ‘reported’ this. In fairness, I’m assuming he means to the Danish FA because they certainly haven’t to fans.

With no timeframe yet placed on a possible return I guess we have to be careful with the choice of words used as apparently in the remainder of the interview Hareide more than implied they still wanted him to travel, presumably capable of playing, so maybe we’re just being precautionary on things?
