EPL: Christian Eriksen names his two greatest football players
Newly signed Manchester United midfielder, Christian Eriksen has named his two greatest footballing heroes.
According to Eriksen, Italy legend, Francesco Totti and Michael Laudrup are his greatest footballing heroes.
Eriksen, a Denmark international midfielder, was unveiled as a Red Devils player on Tuesday. He was pictured in the club’s kit for the first time.
The 30-year-old joined Manchester United as a free agent from Brentford after making a remarkable recovery from the cardiac arrest he suffered at Euro 2020.
The midfielder said it was Totti and Laudrup who inspired him more than most.
“I had a few,” Eriksen told the Manchester United official website when asked for his footballing heroes.
“I had Francesco Totti – mostly because at that age I played a lot of Football Manager, so I had taken over Roma back in that time!
“And then after it was Michael Laudrup. As Danes I can pick Michael Laudrup, but I really wasn’t into many idols.”
