Denmark’s Eriksen dreams of Champions League title

Denmark’s Eriksen dreams of Champions League title

Tottenham Hotspur face Liverpool in the Champions League final at the Wanda Metropolitana in Madrid on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen believes winning the Champions League will alter people's perception of Tottenham. Liverpool's last trophy was in 2012, a League Cup that remains their only success since they won the FA Cup in 2006.

The stats are certainly in their favour.

"Which manager could come to Tottenham and make Tottenham win the Premier League and the Champions League?"

"This team is good enough to win leagues, to win Champions Leagues", the full-back told ESPN. "But it's what we've been working on [under Pochettino]".

"Everyone is expecting a tactical battle, but emotions will be the deciding factor".

"With Tottenham we don't know; however, that's risky. The emotional side is going to be fundamental". We can make history.

The thing is, often now you find that the players who start on either side of the defence are better going forward than they are defensively.

"I$3 think it [will] be closer than you think, COYS, let's show them how good we are".

Kane has scored 24 goals in all competitions for Tottenham this season, despite missing six weeks in January and February with damaged ligaments in the same ankle.

"Messi, of course, he is number one, it is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar", R9 replied when asked about the players he enjoys watching. "I thought he could be very proud of his debut".

"Football is about team spirit, the collective and faith".

"Hopefully we've not got that nonsense again!" he says.

That leaves one more midfield slot with two English players competing for one place - James Milner and Jordan Henderson. "We need to beat Liverpool and if he's available all the better".

Henry, speaking from Madrid, hailed the Liverpool fan base as a pivotal reason in why the club continues to be recognised as such a global powerhouse.

Henry, who became owner of the Premier League outfit in 2010, was full of praise for the club's fan base on the eve of Saturday's final. After their first three group stage games we doubt that anyone could've realistically pictured them being in this position. "How long it will take I have no clue".

"If we're not at 100 per cent, Spurs can hurt us, but we will be leaving everything we've got on that pitch".
