Ajax star Eriksen: I could already be playing for Chelsea

Ajax star Christian Eriksen admits he could be playing for Chelsea. Luckily for Ajax's attacking midfielder, he heads into their Europa League clash having endured a traditional English baptism of fire.

"I went to Chelsea twice when I was 14 and 15," he told the Daily Mail. "I was at Danish club Odense at the time and came across with a friend to Cobham. We played against West Ham youth away and the year after we played Millwall away.

"It was a bit of a shock playing against Millwall. I knew the reputation of English football was tough but my first thoughts when we started were, 'Wow, this is different to Denmark'. They kicked a little more and made crazy tackles but I wasn't injured when I returned to Denmark so I guess I did ok."
