Christian Eriksen has been a wonderful servant to Tottenham over the years with 69 goals and 89 assists in 305 games for the club, so it is a little sad to see his time in North London end in an unsanctimonious fashion.
However, now his time as a Spurs player finally appears to be coming to an end – with the midfielder arriving in Milan ahead of a proposed move to Inter – a number of fans have reacted with sadness.
They have taken the opportunity to send him positive goodwill messages, showing their appreciation for the 27-year-old and what he contributed across a significant period of time, forming part of the teams that made the Champions League final and twice finished second in the Premier League.

Very best of luck to him, we shouldn’t forget an enormous contribution during most of his Spurs career. Neither should we overlook the fact that in recent months any teammate passing to him should have been booked for time wasting ! It’s right for him & Tottenham he leaves now.

He owes us very little for his original fee, he in the whole has left mostly good memories. all the best Eriksen

Yes, we want it done as we have to move on but… It’s also really sad as he was one of our greatest playmakers ever. Good luck Christian!!

I wish him well and thank him for the past years, He played a big part in getting Spurs to where we are today, its a shame its ended on a sour note.

It is a shame that Eriksen doesn’t have the silverware to show for his efforts over the years, as he is certainly worthy of it, often producing magnificent assists and goals during his time in North London, such as the countless free-kicks which found the back of the net.
A move to Italy should allow him to reinvigorate a career which has tailed off in recent months, and the opportunity to fight for the Serie A title could be good motivation.
Some supporters believe the move is exactly what he needs, and suggest it won’t take the playmaker long to recapture his previous form, and given he will be playing under a talented manager in Antonio Conte it is likely he will do exactly that.
He will get back to form there tbh I’m not sure he got the step up he wanted he thought Madrid or barca will come calling. Goodluck @ChrisEriksen8 hope you and your family will be happy in Milan thanks for the memories..

The Italian should suit his style, I think the premier league got too much for him
