Eriksen slams Spurs and claims he was a ‘black sheep who got the blame’

first_imgCHRISTIAN ERIKSEN claims he was “the black sheep” that was labelled a “bad guy” at Tottenham after telling them he wanted to leave.The 27-year-old Danish attacker ended his six-and-a-half-year spell in North London last month as he headed to Inter Milan for £17million.1 Christian Eriksen says he was made to be the ‘black sheep’ at SpursCredit: Getty Images – GettyAfter losing to Liverpool  in last season’s Champions League final, the playmaker handed in a transfer request as he entered the final year of his contract.That led to some fans turning on him, and despite Jose Mourinho’s efforts to convince him to stay, the ex-Ajax ace finally secured his exit a fortnight ago.Now in an interview with BBC Sport, he has explained how his desire to leave made him feel like an outcast despite “being honest” with Spurs.Eriksen said: “If you have a short contract, you will be the black sheep.“I was very honest. I felt I had to be honest. I didn’t want to hide like a lot of players do.“Everyone is different. I was honest. I wanted to say it out loud.”MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at LadbrokesHe continued: “I did get the blame for a lot of stuff, for being the bad guy.“I read I was the bad person in the changing room, that ever since I said I wanted to leave, it was no good me being there.“To be honest, over the last few years, if anything came up, any player would think about leaving but I was the guy who said it publicly.”Mourinho’s arrival in the Tottenham dug-out led to more public comments from the new manager over Eriksen’s future, placing him further under the microscope.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow all the latest news on TottenhamLATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerBut the star, who also admitted to holding talks with Manchester United over a transfer, insists that did not change anything.He added: “No. When the window is not open, there can only be talk. There cannot be anything concrete.“I think Mourinho did well. He could have said ‘he wants to leave, so he is not going to play any more’. He didn’t do that.“After I told him where my feelings were and what I would like to do, he told me just to be happy and if I was needed I would play.“I was needed in a few games where I did make a difference. It was more as an extra rather than in the starting XI of course.”last_img read more

Sport – A Poem on Frailty

first_imgby, Dan Matlock, Geripal.orgTweetShareShareEmail0 Shares An extremely pleasant 89 year old patient of mine has recently been struggling with functional decline. She has developed some new swelling in her ankles and has not been able to get around like she used to.  She is still active and at her most recent visit, she brought in a poem that she wrote with her poetry group. She was flattered that I wanted to post her poem but she did not want me to say anything else about her.  The fact that she participates in a poetry group should tell you a lot about the type of thoughtful person she is. Sport Not jumping broad nor high Not running fast nor straight My only sport is reading fate In dramas now and late My body’s strength Is measured by painful pressure on delicate vessels a high systolic measure Oedipus gave us edema in ankles While all humans sport their pulses and crankles sport can be used as ridicule by those who lack the tool of coordination There is a tension between respecting frailty and preventing frailty.  One of the recurrent themes of this Geripal blog has been to highlight how important it is to respect frail patients.  Her last paragraph in particular captures this perfectly.Curated by: Dan MatlockComment at GeriPal.org Related PostsGiving A Cat a Reason to Live  It is 1 am.  I am holding the plastic IV needle firmly, but gently..
