New Manchester United midfielder Christian has revealed that he was keen to come to Old Trafford, following conversations with manager Erik ten Hag.
Eriksen became Ten Hag’s second signing at United after agreeing to a free transfer, having left Brentford.
Speaking to the United website, the Danish star said his desire to play under Ten Hag made him snubbed other offers and join Ten Hag’s side.
Asked further about how big Ten Hag’s influence was, Eriksen answered: “Very. I want to come here to play football, I don’t come here just for the logo itself, I want to come here and play.
“Obviously, to speak with the manager and hear his ideas and have conversations with him on the football terms, was great and ideal for me to get the decision and the possibility of coming to Manchester United.”
Eriksen is looking forward to playing under Ten Hag.
“I think my style of play hopefully fits in with his ideas and, hopefully, it’s something that will connect in a good and positive way,” he added.
“So, of course, his style of football, I think it suits me.”
