Eriksen ‘unhappy’ with lack of gametime at Man United

Christian Eriksen has voiced his unhappiness at the lack of gametime he is having at Man United this season in a conversation with manager Erik ten Hag. 

The Danish midfielder has made 21 appearances in all competitions this season, only 11 of which have been starts for the Red Devils.

Eriksen came off the bench on Sunday to play a part in Man United’s FA Cup quarter-final win over Liverpool at Old Trafford, but his last start came over two months ago, in the 2-2 draw with former club Tottenham Hotspur in January.


“I’ve had a conversation with Erik that, of course, I’m unhappy with the situation and that I want to play as much as possible, but that I’m available and have to be available for the team, which I am and always will be,” he told Danish publication Tipsbladet

“He said it was the team he had chosen and Kobbie (Mainoo) is doing well and the rest of the centre is doing well as well, so there is a fight for places, which is to be expected when you play at a top club.


“There is a lot of competition in the team. I’ve said in the past that I’m not happy with not playing, but it’s not something I’m sleepless about. The team is performing and so I have to respect the role you have next to it.

“For me, it’s been working hard and focusing on being fresh for every game, and I am. It’s easier now to accept my role than it had been before.”

Eriksen joined Man United as a free agent in 2022, signing a three year deal after leaving Brentford. he has played 65 games for the club.
