Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his hope that Christian Eriksen will sign a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur.
He said: “It is a situation that is a very special situation, Christian is a special person, I think we are all special, different and we need to understand that.
“The timing for him or for the club to be agreeing something are maybe different to another player.
“I hope and I wish Christian can be with us in the future but I think Christian and us we are so open to talk and we will see what happens.
“I think it is so close to the end of the season, a lot of time to talk after and I think the most important thing now, not only for him, is for all the players to be focused and try to achieve the things we want.
“We have a lot of big things ahead and we need to be focused only to try and recover, train and compete.”
Eriksen who scored a brilliant match winner last night against Brighton, had this to say about the goal.
“I had a few warm-up shots before but Ryan did very well and I just saw it fly in! We had a lot of chances and it was very important for us to remain in third after the result against Manchester City.
“There were so many people in the box the whole time, it was a long and a tough game. We need to keep the pressure on the other teams around us, we saw the other results and in order to stay in third we need to win.”
