Tottenham star Christian Eriksen insists he has no regrets about snubbing a move to Chelsea, ahead of tomorrow’s Capital One Cup final at Wembley, reports the Daily Star.
Eriksen moved to Spurs from Ajax in the summer of 2013, despite having previously been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, and having two trials with the club as a youngster.
He has gone on to become a fans favourite at White Hart Lane, and has established himself as one of the best young players in the country with his performances this season.
It was Eriksen who booked Tottenham’s place in tomorrow’s final, scoring two excellent goals in the semi-final second leg draw with Sheffield United.
The Dane has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season, and has been tipped to move on to bigger things should Tottenham fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.Chelsea have been mentioned as a possible future destination, but Eriksen insists he is happy in north London, and has no regrets about his decision to snub the Blues as a 14-year-old in favour of a switch to Ajax.
He said: “I enjoyed myself during the trials but it was too big a step at that time.
“It was so different from what I was used to in Denmark.”
On his decision to sign for Ajax, Eriksen said: “It was a lot closer to home and it meant my mum could come over for my first month.
“The Dutch mentality was a lot closer to the Danish one, so it was an easy decision to make really.”
