Eriksen spoke to ‘every manager’ at Manchester United before signing for the club

1 min read

Christian Eriksen said he held talks with every Manchester United manager during his time at Tottenham Hotspur before finally joining the club on a free transfer from Brentford in July.

Eriksen spent nearly seven seasons with Spurs between 2013-2020 and made more than 300 appearances for the club. During that period, Manchester United had four managers – David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Eriksen, who left Spurs to join Inter Milan in 2020, said last week that new United manager Erik ten Hag’s vision for the club was a big factor in his reason to sign.

“At Spurs I’ve spoken to every manager who’s been here at Manchester United to see what the situation was,” Eriksen told reporters.

“But I was at Spurs at the time and I really couldn’t see myself playing in another English team.

“For me, it wasn’t the (right) timing. I was at Spurs for a long time and I wanted to try something abroad and I went to Inter and ended up having a lovely time.”
