Christian Eriksen wishes he had control over his career “like in Football Manager” after failing to secure a transfer away from Tottenham.

The 27-year-old was linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United but he is set to stay put until at least January.

I wish I could just decide, like in Football Manager, but unfortunately I can’t,” he said.

When asked if he would be able to talk in more depth about his future after the transfer deadline, he replied: “Maybe I can.”

Pressed on whether it was a mistake to speak publicly about wanting a new challenge, he said: “No, it wasn’t. But that’s football, and you never know what will happen in football. A lot of things come into play. For me, it’s not hard to clear my head. I don’t read much of what is written. There have been lots of rumours every year. A lot of different things were written, like that I went to Madrid to look for a house, but it doesn’t disrupt my life at all. I understand well [that there is interest in my future]. I know a lot of people are interested in where I play. That’s the way it is.”
