Spurs ace Erikson not bothered by Barcelona: Pochettino believes in me

Christian Eriksen insists he's happy at Tottenham.

Barcelona are among those to have sent scouts to watch the 25-year-old in this year's Champions League but Eriksen signed a four-year contract last year and enjoys a close relationship with Pochettino.

"He trusts me completely. You feel that trust and it makes you want to do everything for him," Eriksen said.

"He has given stability not only to me but to the whole club. That's the main thing for a player.

"You feel comfortable, you feel aware of everything around you and you don't think about anything other than football when you're on the pitch.

"All the players have long-term contracts. They feel safe being here. It's why you commit your future to a place like this."
