Manchester United new signing Christian Eriksen has opened up on his move to the club.
Eriksen was announced as a new Manchester United player on Friday after joining on a free transfer.
He spent the second half of last season at Brentford after recovering from heart related issues.
He has now revealed the reason behind his move to Old Trafford.
“Manchester United is a special club, and I cannot wait to get started. I have had the privilege of playing at Old Trafford many times but to do it in the red shirt of United will be an amazing feeling.
“I have seen Erik’s work at Ajax and know the level of detail and preparation that he and his staff put into every day.
It is clear that he is a fantastic coach. Having spoken with him and learned more about his vision and the way he wants the team to play, I am even more excited for the future. I still have major ambitions in the game, there is a huge amount that I know I can achieve, and this is the perfect place to continue my journey.”
John Murtough, Manchester United Football Director hailed the club’s latest signing.
“Christian has been one of the best attacking midfielders in Europe throughout his career. It is no surprise that he had so many options this summer, so we are really happy that he was convinced that this is the right club for him.
“In addition to his outstanding technique, Christian will add valuable experience and leadership skills to the squad, and we are looking forward to seeing the benefits of these qualities on the pitch this coming season and beyond.”
The former Tottenham midfielder signed a three-year deal with Manchester United on Friday.
Eriksen has featured in 237 games in the Premier League, scoring 52 goals and recording assists.
