2. Unfinished business at Spurs
Eriksen left Spurs acrimoniously, and with bundles of unfinished business. His comments about wanting to leave prior to his last season at the club created a great divide between him and supporters. The Dane lost his then-unconditionally beloved status amongst supporters and sealed his own fate.
Daniel Levy didn’t manage the situation well, either. No surprise there.
Is there a chance of reconciliation, allowing Eriksen to give it one more go at the club he spent seven mostly glorious years at? I think so, especially considering his close relationship with Conte. Along with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli, Eriksen was a formidable force, almost leading Tottenham to Premier League glory. Assuming he’s in tip-top shape, Eriksen still has three or four excellent years remaining in his storied career.
The experience he gained in winning the Serie A can only server him and Spurs well. Unlike most Spurs players, he has won a domestic title. And that has to mean something. Maybe that experience can help Tottenham get over the hump and win their first trophy in almost 14 years.
