Manchester United open to letting player leave who was “disrespected” last season



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are open to letting Christian Eriksen leave this summer after claims that he was “disrespected” last season.

Christian Eriksen has only played 19 games so far this season, having been very much relegated to the bench following injuries and the emergence of Kobbie Mainoo in midfield across the last two months.

His importance has wained at Manchester United since he suffered a three-month injury in January 2023, with the Dane’s age catching up to him and his performances under Erik ten Hag suffering as a result.

It is now said that the club are now open to letting him leave in the summer, two summers after United signed him on a free contract from Brentford.

Eriksen has played 63 times since he joined Old Trafford, scoring three goals and providing a further 12 assists during his time in Red.

Speaking last season, former United defender Paul Parker felt that Eriksen was being disrespected during his three-month injury.

“The blow of missing Christian Eriksen has been bigger than expected,” Parker said last season. “And the fact that no one is talking about it makes me feel that he is being disrespected.

“He is a very important player, but no one notices it. He controls the pace of the game, he is the one to decide if Man United are going to attack or just relax on the ball.”

However, this is no longer the case, with Mainoo shining in midfield and Mason Mount expected back from injury in the coming weeks.
