Christian Eriksen admits he was “dreaming” about being in his current situation at Manchester United last year

Christian Eriksen has admitted that he was “dreaming” about his current situation before moving to Manchester United last year.

The Dane has just returned to action after a lengthy spell on the sidelines, much to the delight of supporters. The stability and creativity he brings to United’s midfield were sorely missed in his absence, so it’s a relief to see him back on the pitch at such a pivotal stage in the season.

Eriksen, unfortunately, missed the Carabao Cup final back in February but came down from the stands at Wembley to celebrate with the travelling Reds and his teammates after the squad secured the win, which also put an end to a six-year trophy drought.

Now, the Red Devils are in contention to win a further two trophies; if they overturn Sevilla in tonight’s game, they will book their place in the Europa League semi-finals and on Sunday they take on Brighton and Hove Albion, again at Wembley, in the FA Cup semis.

When quizzed on the feeling of pursuing trophies again, Eriksen responded (via the club website): “Looking back, a year ago, I was dreaming about where I am today. 

“Back then, it was just a dream of being back playing football and then of course taking it step by step and just being the best version of a football player you can be. And I was lucky at the time that the manager wanted me to come here. I’m enjoying it – I did a year ago, but I’m doing it even more now. To go as far as possible will be fun. And where we are now, already with a trophy, with aims for two more, it’ll be good fun.”
