Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen had a storming game against West Brom at the weekend, but in what will likely irritate Spurs fans, his manager Tim Sherwood compared the young Dane to Arsenel legend Dennis Bergkamp, reports the Express.
Sherwood grew up as a fan of Tottenham’s bitter rivals, which has riled Spurs supporters all season, and this latest gaffe will not do him any favours either.
“Berkamp-esque,” Sherwood said, when asked to describe Eriksen’s equalising goal from Saturday.
“You want someone to rush those chances as an opposition manager but when it lands to him you know he’s going to be ice cold.
“Once he cut inside I knew the net was catching the ball.”
With Spurs virtually certain to miss out on Champions League football next term, it’s widely expected that Sherwood will be relieved of his duties in time for the 2014/15 season, with Louis van Gaal the favourite to take his job at the helm.
