What a night Wednesday was for Tottenham! Indeed, it proved they really can compete with the best and showed why Christian Eriksen should stay at least one more season to try and make history for the club who made him what he is today.
Despite spending absolutely nothing during or since the summer, the Lilywhites held their own against big spenders City and are now playing the games that Eriksen will have thought he’d have to leave in order to play. The tie meant much more than just progression.
The Danish wizard – who the Daily Mail report the club could be under pressure to sell – has been key to landing his club where they are today, despite him not having the best of seasons by his incredibly high standards. He’d be mad to leave this summer, just when Spurs are on the cusp of making that finally push for the title.
Yes, he’s 27-years-old and there are certainly higher profile clubs that he could play for, but what’s one more year in a career that possibly has another five at the very top level. If Spurs win the Premier League next year, then he’s a hero. If they don’t, their fans can’t blame him for leaving.
Indeed, the loss to City on Saturday proved there’s still work to do on that front and, at in their new stadium, what better place to do it?
To go this summer just feels like it’d be an unfinished job. It felt that way at the start of this season, but now it’s clear there’s a real possibility that the club are able to finish that job in the next campaign or so, if they sign the right players and keep their top stars.
Eriksen should take whatever Daniel Levy offers and give it one more season to become a club legend. History is within his grasp, and he shouldn’t jump ship just as it nears its final destination.
