Tottenham hero Waddle: Eriksen no big match performer

Tottenham hero Chris Waddle is unconvinced by Christian Eriksen's performances in big games.

Against Manchester City last week, the Dane was largely anonymous.

Waddle told the Mirror: “Eriksen walked around as if he wasn't interested against Manchester City. He believes that he is good enough to go to a Real Madrid or a Barcelona .

“Fair enough if a club like that shows an interest, but that doesn't appear to be the case. After that, what's the point of leaving Spurs to go to, say, a Sevilla or a similar European club?

“He's a good player, but not someone who is capable of dictating a game at Real Madrid , Barcelona or Bayern Munich . I can see why the Spurs fans like him, but he is not someone who grasps the big games.

“He stands out against the likes of Aston Villa , changing the game when he came on as a substitute. Hopefully, once the European window closes, he can focus on Spurs.

“And if the big clubs continue to ignore him, then take the new contract offer from Spurs, which is a good one, and help the club win something."
