The Dane faces a long spell out fears Villas-Boas.
The biggest fear for a club manager during the international break is injury to their players and that is exactly what has happened to Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen.
Andre Villas-Boas fears that the attacking midfielder will face three months out after damaging ligaments in the player’s ankle whilst playing for Denmark, reports the Daily Mail.
This is a worse prognosis than was originally given by the Spurs medical team and it will come as a big blow to Villas-Boas to lose one of the boss’ most creative stars.
Tottenham have struggled in attack so far this term, managing to find the net just nine times in 11 league matches – only 19th placed Sunderland and bottom placed Crystal Palace have scored less.
This is said to be because not enough creativity is coming from midfield and the absence of Eriksen until 2014 is hardly going to help that situation.
The north London club signed the 21-year-old at the end of the summer transfer window, with the Dane having impressed over the past three years with Ajax.
Since then Eriksen has played 12 matches in all competitions for AVB’s side, providing six assists and generally impressing.
Spurs turned to the midfielder when potential moves for Brazilian duo Bernard and Willian fell through and paid the Dutch champions £11m for the attacking midfield ace.
Despite still being so young Eriksen already has significant experience in the Champions League and also an impressive 42 international caps.
