Christian Eriksen compares Manchester United ‘vibe’ to Real Madrid and Barcelona
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports (transcribed into text), Christian Eriksen has talked about joining Manchester United and agrees with the comparison that Manchester United’s vibe is similar to that of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Danish playmaker joined Man United on a free transfer this summer and has been one of the best players this season under Erik ten Hag. The former Tottenham man has been unbelievable for the Red Devils in midfield despite playing in a deeper role.
Eriksen has now revealed that he was considering a move to Man United in the past when he was a Spurs player but a move was never close to a move as he was not looking to make such a shift back then.
The Dane’s career is one of the most beautiful stories in football. He left Tottenham Hotspur to join Inter Milan and his footballing career was brought to a standstill when he suffered a cardiac arrest during the Euros last year.
However, Eriksen made a resounding return to football by joining Brentford for the last six months of last season. He had an impressive stint with the Bees but chose not to renew with them and instead joined Man United.
When asked by the interviewer if Manchester United is one of the few clubs along with Barcelona and Real Madrid where the vibe hits very differently, Eriksen concurred and said that he totally agrees with that.
“Yea 100 per cent. 100 per cent. Also, the thing from the club, how big it is. It’s for everyone; how many people following it. How much the media attention is. Everything is just bigger”
Eriksen has been a revelation for Man United. It was the perfect match for a player who was looking to get back into playing at the elite level of football and a team that was desperately crying out for a creative presence in midfield.
The Dane will now be back with his national team in Qatar as they look to build on an impressive Euros campaign and show the world that they belong at the very top level and deserve to be given some credit.
