Erik ten Hag gives Man Utd huge boost after issuing ‘very positive’ injury news

Erik ten Hag has announced that Christian Eriksen, a crucial midfielder, will make a comeback from his injury in the upcoming month, which is good news for Manchester United.

Last summer, Christian Eriksen joined Manchester United from Brentford, where he had an outstanding season.

 He was an instant success at United, bringing quality to the midfield and demonstrating superior natural ability and impact compared to players such as Fred and Scott McTominay.

Christian Eriksen’s exceptional ball-handling skills were particularly noticeable, as he managed to record seven assists in 18 Premier League starts before being sidelined by an ankle injury earlier this year. 

Since the injury, he has not played for Manchester United, causing a lot of frustration for both him and the team. 

However, there is good news, as it seems that the 31-year-old is nearing a return to the squad, following an important update.

Christian Eriksen to return from injury next month

Speaking to TV2 Sport [via Sport Witness], Ten Hag confirmed that he anticipates Eriksen to be back in action in April at some point:

“It is very positive. He healed very quickly. I don’t think he will be ready for Sunday [against Fulham], but he will be ready in April. He is on his way back, and we are happy about that. He is a class player that we need. I can’t wait for him to be back.”

The return of Eriksen to the team could have a huge impact on Manchester United, especially as they face a grueling end to the season in the Premier League, Europa League, and FA Cup. 

Ten Hag’s team is still far from securing a top-four finish in the Premier League, and they have the chance to win silverware in both the Europa League and the FA Cup, with matches against Fulham and Sevilla in the quarter-finals of each competition, respectively.

Christian Eriksen’s exceptional midfield skills can create opportunities that others on the United team are unable to. Despite being sidelined for an extended period, he still has the highest number of assists in the league this season. 

He complements Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes perfectly, and his return could be a significant boost for United during the most crucial part of the season. 

Ten Hag has recognized Eriksen’s importance as a player, and his return is likely to be welcomed with enthusiasm. Additionally, Eriksen is a Danish legend who has scored 39 goals in his career, making him an even more valuable asset to the team.
