Christian Eriksen has been backed to be the kind of character that can change the “diva mentality” at Manchester United by fellow Dane and former Red Devils goalkeeper, Anders Lindegaard.
Eriksen is currently a free agent after his short-term deal with Brentford expired at the end of last month.
A number of teams have since been linked with the no.10, but it does appear to be Manchester United who are closing in on a deal, with personal terms understood to have been agreed this week.
Now, as mentioned above, ex-Manchester United star Andres Lindegaard has been speaking about Eriksen moving to Old Trafford.
When doing so, the shot-stopper praised Eriksen for his special mentality before suggesting that Manchester United have become a club with a lot of ‘diva mentality’:
“It’s a fairytale story. No-one would have seen that in a crystal ball and I’m just so happy for Christian that he’s been able to make it back in such a great way,” Lindegaard said.
“I’m very impressed, but not particularly surprised. Christian has got a special kind of mentality; a mentality that will suit United very much. He’s not in football for the fame, the money, the luxury lifestyle or showing off. Christian is in football for the love of the game – in a way that I don’t know anyone else is.
“For that reason mainly, he fits very well at United which, looking from the outside, has turned into a club with a lot of diva mentality, a lot of players who have a lot of followers on social media – and you get the sense that becoming a part of Manchester United is part of getting more attention and personal branding.
“Christian comes in as a completely different character. He couldn’t care less about followers on social media. He couldn’t care less about fancy cars or expensive watches. All he cares about is playing football, enjoying football and making it into the beautiful game we all want it to be.”
