“It’s gone really quickly,” Eriksen told the club’s official website. “It’s my fourth season now and yet it doesn’t feel like that, it feels more like a second season and it’s more and more exciting.

“There is a great future at this place and I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t see that. It’s a very good group of people, players who connect with each other, staff who connect with the players and we all have an idea of where we want to go, and hopefully we’ll achieve it.”
