Christian Eriksen has labelled his Tottenham teammate Harry Kane “the perfect striker” ahead of Saturday’s North London derby against Arsenal.
The Dane, who scored an hat-trick for Denmark on Tuesday night, was speaking to Sky Sports about his on-pitch relationship with Kane.
“He’s the perfect striker, I think,” said Eriksen. “He scores goals, he helps the team, he can hold the ball, he can use his head. He can do a bit of everything. We have a good connection. Harry knows where to run and I know how to find him, so it’s a good mix.”
Eriksen also spoke about Mauricio Pochettino’s impact on the club.
“He has given stability not only to me but to the whole club,” he said. “That’s the main thing for a player. You feel comfortable, you feel aware of everything around you and you don’t think about anything other than football when you’re on the pitch.
“All the players have long-term contracts. They feel safe being here. It’s why you commit your future to a place like this.”
“He gives his players a lot of confidence and he trusts to let them play.I have played a lot of games under the manager now. He knows what I’m good for and what I’m not good for but he trusts me completely. You feel that trust and it makes you want to do everything for him.”
