Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas believes Christian Eriksen is a 'wonderful creative player'
12:21pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in Sport
Andre Villas-Boas has heaped praise on new signing Christian Eriksen saying the attacking midfielder is perfect player to fill the number ten spot at White Hart Lane.
The Danish player was captured for a reported figure of £11.5m and was only kept out of featuring in the North London Derby match against Arsenal as his paperwork wasn’t ready.
Eriksen has been a pivotal player for Ajax, scoring 33 goals in 161 appearances, as they claimed three successive Eredivisie titles.
“He’s a wonderful creative player,” Villas-Boas said. “A great solution to our number ten position.
"We’ll have great competition in that position as well, with Lewis (Holtby) doing extremely well in the week against Tbilisi, so our idea is to create a very strong squad that competes to be in the team.
“I think Christian brings that flair and creativity we saw in Ajax for these last two years, a great ability to see a pass and that is used to playing at a high level in Europe so I’m extremely pleased.”
