Christian Eriksen sends message to Man United fans ahead of Man City game
Christian Eriksen has sent a message to the Manchester United fans after being awarded the club’s player of the month award for September.
Christian Eriksen discusses winning the player of the month award
Last month was positive for both Eriksen and United as the new signing continues to impress in the Premier League after arriving on a free transfer. After shining in the wins over Leicester City and Arsenal, the 30-year-old scooped the fan-chosen award.
Eriksen’s overall work in the midfield has been a joy to watch as the Danish international has adapted to the ‘Frenkie de Jong’ role which has been asked of him by Erik ten Hag. Speaking to MUTV, Eriksen explained what winning the award means to him.
“I think September has been nice. It’s been a good ride compared to, of course, the end of August, which was a bit tough result-wise,” he explained. “But I think, personally and club-wise, the results in September were good so September was a good month.”
“I’m grateful and thankful for the people voting,” Eriksen added. “I mean I wasn’t sure when I arrived about there being a player of the month every month. I think it’s the first club I’ve been at where you have that but, again, it means a connection with the fans and they feel part of it and I am pleased that they voted for me.”
United supporters will be hoping that Eriksen continues to impress on Sunday when their side travel to local rivals Manchester City in the Premier League. A victory this weekend would see Ten Hag’s side move to within two points of the Blues with a game in hand over them.
