Bruno Fernandes delighted to play alongside Christian Eriksen in the Manchester United midfield
Eriksen signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2022 as a free agent. And the 30-year-old has made an immediate impact in the side. The Danish national has been a constant in Erik ten Hag’s starting XI.
“It’s really good to play with Christian. He is a player who can find passes, that can find pockets and obviously make my game easier because he can find me when I move in between the lines. It’s something that is not easy to do.”
Eriksen had been out of action for a while after collapsing in the first game against Finland during the Euro 2020. The 30-year-old donned the pitch once again at the start of this year. The Danish national enjoyed a short spell with Brentford.
At United, Eriksen has quickly become a vital member of the side. The gaffer has started the Danish national on every game this season.
Eriksen played in the centre-forward role in the first competitive game against Brighton & Hove Albion. However, the 30-year-old seemed to struggle. Ten Hag then deployed the Danish national in the pivot position against Brentford. And the ex-Tottenham Hotspur star did not look comfortable.
Since then, the Dutch manager has played Eriksen in the box-to-box position. And the 30-year-old has thrived ever since.
Eriksen took his form into the international break as well. And the midfielder put on a show against Croatia and France in the UEFA Nations League.
