Denmark coach Olsen: Spurs have star in Eriksen

Denmark coach Morten Olsen is delighted seeing Christian Eriksen make an instant impact at Tottenham.

The young Dane immediately looked at home in the Premier League, providing the creative spark for Andre Villas-Boas's side.

Olsen told the Sunday Mirror: "He is a special talent, he has everything.

"He has played over 40 games for Denmark and played in a World Cup and European ­Championship so he's also a very experienced footballer for someone who's still only 21.

"He won the title three times in Holland (with Ajax) - but it was time to go.

"He's a natural-born talent. When he played in the European Championship he played three games in a week and even though his form was not so good he was a guy who ran more than any other player in the Championship. He's not a physical player but he's a good team player and as well as being a perfect No.10 he can also play in that No.8 role as well because of his ability."
