Spurs playmaker Lo Celso: I don't want to be compared with Eriksen

Giovani Lo Celso insists he's not at Tottenham to replace Christian Eriksen.

Lo Celso is impressing under new Spurs manager Jose Mourinho, but is eager to duck comparisons with new Inter Milan signing Christian Eriksen.

"Christian is a fantastic player and I have seen what he can do through the months we had together at the club," said Lo Celso.

"In the end, the club and Eriksen came to a decision that the best was a change. I try not to compare myself to him.

"Right now I enjoy being at such a big club as Spurs. At first, it wasn't that easy for me. It was a new league, a new language and a new culture. At the same time, I was injured shortly after my arrival. But right now I couldn't be better off."
