15 January 2020
EUROPE- Jose Mourinho has hinted that Christian Eriksen move may be imminent to leave Tottenham urging the attacking midfielder to leave with his head up amid reports an imminent transfer to Inter Milan was set to be announced.
According to reports Inter is said to have offered Tottenham just €10m for the deal to go in January with Daniel Levy holding out for more with the Spurs fans turning on him after booing him recently.
However, Mourinho says that Eriksen should be proud of his stint in north London head up if he gives everything.
“He played very well. Played very well, very professional which is what I expect from him,” Mourinho said of his display against Boro.
“If his decision is to leave I think he has to leave with his head up if he gives everything which is what he tries to do for the team.
“Fans, it’s always to respect, we have to respect but I think the boy did it for us today.”
The Portuguese tactician was speaking after his side won 2-1 in the FA Cup replay against Middlesborough at the Tottenham stadium with Lo Celso and Lamela on target for the Lily Whites.
