Liverpool hero left red-faced after his tweet mocking Christian Eriksen Man United pursuit spectacularly backfires

Jose Enrique, the Liverpool hero, has been left with egg on his face after a tweet criticising Manchester United’s pursuit of Brentford star Christian Eriksen resurfaced.

Various reports claim that the Dane will sign a three-year contract with United in the coming days.

Eriksen joined Brentford on a six-month contract after being released by Inter Milan, since Serie A rules stated he couldn’t compete in the division owing to his ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator). 

With his Bees contract expiring at the start of the month, speculation over his next move raged throughout June, with Tottenham, United, and Thomas Frank’s men all being mentioned.

And, after supposedly choosing United as his future destination, an old tweet from Liverpool legend Enrique surfaced, guaranteed to make the Spaniard angry.

“Christian Eriksen has rejected Manchester United’s offer and prefers to either stay with Brentford or join Tottenham,” Enrique tweeted just two weeks ago.

“Another player rejects a move to Man United this summer…Ata legooooooooooo”. 

Eriksen succeeded in west London, with one goal and four assists in just 11 games, indicating that despite his heart attack just eight months previously, he could still shine at the greatest level.

Since Eriksen’s debut in late February, only Kevin De Bruyne and Martin Odegaard have generated more Premier League opportunities for their respective clubs.

And the Danish star revealed how much fun he had with the west Londoners.

“It’s been very special since day one,” he revealed. “[Brentford] have taken good care of me. Everyone’s been really happy about it and everyone’s been really helpful.

“Everyone is here. My family, my parents, my kids, my mother in law and some doctors who have been helping me back and forth. What they’ve been through is even tougher than what I’ve been through.” Eriksen is set to join United as one of Erik ten Hag’s first signings in a new era for the Red Devils.

Frankie de Jong is also expected to finalise a move to the north west before the end of the week, while Feyenoord midfielder Tyrell Malacia is also expected to join the Theatre of Dreams.

With Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, and Juan Mata all leaving on free transfers earlier this month, Manchester United is currently lacking in creative skill in midfield.

Ten Hag will be hoping that former Ajax star Eriksen can fill that void with his performances at Brentford if his side is to qualify for the Champions League.
