Danish midfielder Christian has confirmed that he has spoken to manager Erik ten Hag about his playing time and how he is troubled by his lack of playing time.

He has seen his playing time greatly reduced compared to last season on account of the emergence of young Kobbie Mainoo who has been an absolute revelation to ten Hag’s midfield.

Speaking to Danish media outlet Tipsbladet, the midfield maestro explained how frustrated he has felt from not playing but all the while respecting the new role.

“I have previously stated that I am not satisfied with not playing, but it’s not something that keeps me up at night,” Eriksen told the media outlet.

“The team is performing, and I must respect the role you have alongside. For my part, it has been about working hard and focusing on being fresh for every game, and I am. It is easier now to accept my role than it would have been before.” he concluded this time referencing respecting his new role in the team.

Eriksen joined the Red Devils in the summer of 2022 on a free transfer and was absolutely instrumental in last season’s 3rd place finish and Carabao Cup win. He formed a fantastic relationship with captain Bruno at the heart of midfield.

The Danish Maestro also confirmed he has spoken to manager ten Hag on his playing situation and how he is currently unhappy with his playing time, especially with the Euros coming up.

“I have had a conversation with Erik about being unhappy with the situation and wanting to play as much as possible, but I am available and need to be available for the team, which I am and always will be,” he stated.

“Of course, you can be concerned in the long run because I want to play as much as possible. Naturally, you don’t want to always sit on the bench. I don’t have that approach to it, but it’s not something that worries me right now.

“Often, when you change teams and win, you don’t change the winning team, and I respect that.” he concluded.
