Manchester United player told to accept Brighton transfer as he is at the ‘wrong club’



| Last Updated:


Christian Eriksen has been advised to move to Brighton in order to make sure he continues being a key player for a Premier League club.

Christian Eriksen was a key player in the second half of Manchester United‘s 1-0 victory over FC Copenhagen in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, helping guide them to their first win in the competition this campaign.

It was the Danish midfielder who played a fantastic ball into Harry Maguire who headed past Kamil Grabara to hand Old Trafford a much-needed win, with Andrè Onana also deserving plaudits for a brilliant penalty save in what was quite literally the dying moments to keep the victory.

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes that although Eriksen had a major impact on Tuesday’s result, he is not playing for the right club due to the style of play that Erik ten Hag’s team operates.

“Eriksen made a big difference when he came on against FC Copenhagen because he actually wanted to pass the ball. But he needs players around him who have the same brain as he does, and he also needs to be in a team who wants to dominate in the possession,” Parker told SpilXperten.

“The problem is, that Eriksen is the last player you would want in your team against Man City because you really don’t want him to chase the ball.

“He needs players around him who are working hard and then he can do what he is good at. He is not going to get that at Manchester United.”

Speaking further, Parker explained that due to this, Eriksen should consider a transfer to Brighton, who have been stellar in possession under Roberto De Zerbi this season.

“He is a player that would work well in a Man City or a Brighton team. He might not have the level to play for Man City anymore but if he played for Brighton, he would be a key player.

“Brighton are playing to his strengths and I think he would be a great fit for them. I don’t want to lose him but on the other hand, I can’t see him getting a key role at Manchester United with the way they are playing.”
