Club News: Didier Deschamps was full of praise for Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen
France boss Didier Deschamps was full of praise for Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen. This came ahead of the match between France and Denmark later in the evening today.
Eriksen joined United this summer on a free transfer after he spent the latter half of last season at Brentford. Since his arrival, the Dane has revitalised the United midfield.
And now he has earned full praise from the French boss. Speaking ahead of their UEFA Nations League game, as quoted in the Metro, Deschamps sang praise for the 30-year-old.
“The ability that he shows with his club in the position he plays, because he has always been someone who has a remarkable technical ability. But to play so frequently for his club in the midfield, to see the volume of games he plays, this ability even to recover is impressive.”
The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder infamously suffered a cardiac arrest at the Euro 2020. It seemed that his football career would come to an end, but the Dane had other ideas.
He healed himself and now though he plays with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD), the midfielder seems to be back to his old form. Even after all this, the 30-year-old is bossing the midfield, but this time for the Red Devils.
Eriksen has played in all eight games for United this season in all competitions. He is yet to find the back of the net but has assisted two goals till now. The midfielder was on the scoresheet for his country last time out when he scored a beautiful curling goal from outside the box in their 2-1 defeat to Croatia.
The midfielder will likely start the game against France too. A win and a favourable result from Austria against Croatia could help the Danes qualify for the semi-finals of the Nations League. Eriksen will hope to lead his country and win an international trophy.
