Eriksen: Tottenham want Champions League
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has reiterated the team’s desire to finish in the top four of the Premier League and qualify for the Champions League, Sky Sports has reported.
Spurs are currently fifth in the table, four points behind Manchester City and five ahead of Everton, who have played a game less than Tim Sherwood’s side.
Eriksen said that when he joined Tottenham from Ajax in the summer a place in the Champions League was the aim, and it still is today.
“I think everybody at the club wants to be in the top four,” Eriksen said. “When I came here I really wanted to play in the Champions League and that is what we all want,” the Denmark international added.
Andre Villas-Boas was the Spurs Head Coach at the time Eriksen moved to White Hart Lane but was replaced by Tim Sherwood in December. Eriksen thanked Sherwood for his support and added he is excited at the climax to the season, with Spurs still to play Chelsea and Arsenal before May.
“[Sherwood] is different from Villas-Boas of course,” Eriksen continued. “It's been really fine. I've been playing so of course that is always nice.
“I'm just trying to repay him for the advice and the positive things that he has given me and, with the chance to play, I want to pay him back on the pitch.
“For me it's the first season so every game is [a big game]. But we know how big these opponents are especially. They are big clubs so of course there are going to be some really nice games.”
Eriksen has made 25 appearances for Tottenham this season, scoring five goals.
