Christian Eriksen has defended underfire Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The Dane insists AVB just needs time.

"We have a good manager,'' Eriksen told the Telegraph. "He's really young (36). If you sit him next to Brad (Friedel, 42), then he's really young. He seems like he really wants us to play offensive football, doing our thing. Unluckily it hasn't been what he wished for. "
