Christian Eriksen: Exit rumours no bearing on Tottenham's poor form

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has denied uncertainty over his and some of his team-mates" futures is behind Tottenham's inconsistent start to the season, but admits this is the "hardest time' of his Spurs career.

All six players remain part of the group but Eriksen says they remain committed to the cause, despite a awful series of results for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Spurs were knocked out of the League Cup by Colchester last month, while they lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week before falling 3-0 at Brighton on the weekend.

"It doesn't matter at all".

The North London side have had a awful start to the season after the highs of 2018/19 where they made it to the UEFA Champions League final, only to lose to Liverpool.

"If I, as a football player, took all the rumours to me, I would float on a cloud".

"It does not affect me what is written".

Eriksen has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain but the 27-year-old maintains that he and other Spurs players rumoured to be leaving north London remain focused on doing their best for the club.

He does accept, however, that he is having his toughest time since joining the club in 2013.

You can hardly blame him, and this worldwide break might prove to come at the right time for the whole Tottenham squad, allowing them to clear their heads before returning to London reinvigorated and determined to turn things around.

"I don't see at the moment Pochettino winning anything unless he does a complete refurb of his back four, goalkeeper and probably a couple of areas in midfield as well", Cascarino told talkSPORT.

Spurs could definitely do with some fresh blood in their team to lift a squad that appears to have gone stale, but Pochettino needs to know he has time to rebuild again if that is the case.

"Expectations for us are at a completely different level now".

"But the reason for our results is actually hard to answer. But we have also been unlucky".
