Christian Eriksen unhappy at Manchester United

The 32-year-old has made only 11 starts for his club this season, in part due to missing a month because of a knee injury before Christmas.

However, Eriksen has since found it hard to earn a place in the starting lineup. Eriksen came off the bench in Sunday’s FA Cup win over Liverpool. But his last start came more than two months ago.

The Dane will enter the final 12 months of his contract this summer and, speaking while on international duty with Denmark, discussed his recent role:

“I have previously stated that I am not satisfied with not playing, but it’s not something that keeps me up at night,” Eriksen told Danish newspaper Tipsbladet.

“The team is performing, and I must respect the role you have alongside. For my part, it has been about working hard and focusing on being fresh for every game, and I am. It is easier now to accept my role than it would have been before.

“I have had a conversation with Erik about being unhappy with the situation and wanting to play as much as possible, but I am available and need to be available for the team, which I am and always will be.”
