Christian Eriksen makes bold statement about Tottenham
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen believes that the current squad is strong enough to compete on both domestic and European fronts next season.
The claim may take some people by surprise after their failure in Europe this campaign.
Spurs were dumped out of both the Champions League and Europa League this campaign, causing many people to question their strength in depth.
It is widely regarded that the north London club have one of the strongest starting line-ups in the Premier League, but their options off the bench struggle to compete with their rivals.
However, Eriksen is adamant that Spurs already have a strong squad and they will only improve next season.

The 25-year-old was asked whether his side are capable of competing across all competitions and was emphatic with his answer.
“I definitely think so,” Eriksen told talkSPORT. “We have a very strong squad and everyone who is there now, the young players, will be even more mature (next season).
“I think the squad is very big and the transfers is down to the manager and the chairman.”
Spurs are still competing in both the Premier League and FA Cup this season, despite their early exit from Europe.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side face League One opposition Millwall on Sunday in the FA Cup quarter-finals and have a great chance of making it to Wembley.
They are also competing in the league for a top spot and are second in the table, while runaway leaders Chelsea are 10 points above them.
Eriksen is one of the unsung heroes in the Spurs squad and doesn’t receive the same praise as attacking team-mates Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
The Denmark international is an ever-present in the side and has made 36 appearances this season, scoring eight goals and supplying 14 assists.
