Christian Eriksen is adamant that an expiring contract and ongoing talk of interest from Real Madrid has nothing to do with the limited game time he has been seeing at Tottenham.
Eriksen admits that he is seeing fewer minutes than he has grown accustomed to across six years in England, but believes he remains in contention for every game Spurs take in.
“I feel 100 per cent that Tottenham has complete confidence in me,” he told Danish media outlet BT.
“There is not that big a difference, except that I play a little less this year.
“I don’t feel there is a connection between my contract situation and the fact that I haven’t played as many matches.”
Eriksen added: “I might take a little more chance than certain other positions on the pitch.
“Of course there are mistakes, and the decisions taken must also be carried out correctly. They may have been a little bit missing.
“I’ve been in the right situations. I just haven’t taken the right decisions. It’s a bit about the sharpness that is missing. This is something I have to work on myself.”
