Christian Eriksen’s agent responds to ‘chronic’ injury fears

Christian Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots, insists the midfielder is not suffering from a chronic stomach injury.

Danish national team manager Age Hareide’s comments about the injury being “chronic” were just incorrectly translated, according to Schoots.

The 26-year-old has been absent from Spurs’ squad following the injury sustained during the club’s 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Fears emerged on Monday that Eriksen could be sidelined for a sustained period of time with Hareide claiming the player’s injury was “chronic”.

Tottenham Hotspur have been without the Dane for four matches and he appeared to be a huge miss during their defeat to FC Barcelona.

However, the 26-year-old’s agent has dismissed reports by claiming the national team manager was just mistranslated.

Schoots told Standard Sport:

“Some international media have translated Hareide’s words badly. 

“Christian has no chronic injuries – nobody has said that.

“He just has an injury related to some fatigue and, for that reason, he is having some rest.

“That is normal because otherwise it would not heal.

“Somebody has not translated well. Christian is doing everything to be back as soon as possible.”

No timeframe on Eriksen’s injury

Tottenham are yet to place a timeframe on Eriksen’s return from injury.

The midfielder is currently completing light training alone at Hotspur Way, report Standard Sport.

He will miss Denmark’s UEFA Nations League tie against the Republic of Ireland on Saturday and next week’s friendly against Austria.
