You won’t see too many newspaper reports that use the words ‘charm’ and ‘Daniel Levy’ in the same sentence but while we’re all raving about Christian Eriksen’s debut performance, the Dane has revealed that the Chairman himself swayed his decision to leave Ajax and join the revolution at White Hart Lane.
The midfielder claimed an assist in both Tottenham goals in our 2-0 win over Norwich and drew praise from all sides as he battled with Gylfi Sigurdsson for the man of the match award.
“I talked a little bit with the manager but I had more to do with the chairman and the director Baldini. They were they guys who really had the right words,” Eriksen said.
“The first contact was with my agent and then my agent talked to me and I said, ‘Go on, I really want to hear what they have got to say’.
“It really impressed me that they wanted it so badly and wanted to do it so quickly.”
The 21 year old added that the club underlined its ambitions for the coming season and beyond.
“The club wants to be in the Champions League next season, for sure, and then we have, of course, to become champions,” he added.
“That is why he spent so much money on good players and that is just the sort of thing I want to be part of.”
While there has been talk of a title tilt, the Champions League really is the aim this season and on the evidence of one game, Christian Eriksen is going to have to play a major part if Spurs are to hit that initial target.
