Tottenham star Christian Eriksen's facing lengthy lay-off with abdominal injury

Eriksen has been sidelined with an abdominal injury picked up in the win at Brighton last month.

The playmaker is set to miss the Dane’s Uefa Nations League clash with the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.

And Hareide has revealed the Premier League side are not keen for Eriksen to report for international duty as he is expected to be out of action for a while.

Hareide told Denmark’s Canal9: “Christian (Eriksen) has a problem with his abdominal muscle, and Tottenham have reported that it is of long-term nature.

“It is doubtful whether we will bring him to Dublin and make him play.

“I do not think that Tottenham are particularly keen on that.

“It has been a long time since he played in the match against FC Barcelona (in the Champions League). Against Cardiff, he was also out (of action).

“It has been over a week and I know that he has known about (the injury) for a while.

“Such an injury can be chronic, and it is true that Tottenham are worried.”
