Christian Eriksen’s ambition of playing in the 2022 World Cup is still alive, according to manager Antonio Conte, who believes “the door is always open” for him to train at Tottenham.
Eriksen, 29, fell in June while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020, and revealed earlier this week that he “dying for five minutes.” He is looking for a new club after leaving Inter Milan due to Serie A rules that prevented him from playing. Eriksen, according to Conte, is a “really essential player” and a “top man.”
During his stint at Inter Milan, the Italian recruited Eriksen from Tottenham. Last season, Eriksen assisted Conte in winning the Serie A title, but he was no longer able to play for the team due to the implantable device.
Asked if Eriksen could train with Tottenham, Conte said: “For sure, it was great, it was fine, to see him on a pitch, to see that he is kicking a ball.
“What happened this summer was very not good, not good, for the people that worked with him, and the people that know him. I was scared in that moment.
“And now, to see him again ready to play football is great news. I think for Christian, the door is always open.”
