Fabio da Silva has sung the praises of Christian Eriksen ahead of Manchester United’s game against Ajax.
Sir Alex Ferguson singled Eriksen out for praise after last week’s game against the Dutch club and even suggested we might be interested in buying him.
“Eriksen is a very good player,” he told United Review. “He can pass the ball very well and create chances, and he was always very composed. I think he’s Ajax’s best player. Ajax are a good team. They’re from Holland, so that means they’re always trying to pass the ball. Never long balls, always on the floor, they’re a good team. It’s like in the Brazilian league, where you always try to play well. Ajax almost played with three strikers, but against us I think they had to defend a little bit more.”
