Former Manchester United player, Paul Parker, has identified midfielder Christian Eriksen as the Red Devils star that is being disrespected due to a lack of outrage over his injury.
Parker insisted that Eriksen is a very important player, who controls the pace of the game for Man United, adding that no one notices it.
According to him, Erik ten Hag’s side are less capable of controlling games when the Denmark international is not playing for the team.
Eriksen has been sidelined with a serious ankle problem since late January, missing 12 games across all competitions for Man United in the process.
Speaking to SpilXperten, Parker said, “The blow of missing Eriksen has been bigger than expected. And the fact that no one is talking about it makes me feel that he’s being disrespected.
“He’s a very important player, but no one notices it. He controls the pace of the game, he’s the one to decide if Manchester United are going to attack or just relax on the ball.”
“I would say that United are less capable of controlling games when he’s not there. Fred and Sabitzer are brilliant players, but they don’t have the same brain as he does. But of course, United have made some really good results without him and that might be the reason why no one is talking about him right now.”
“But, I have to say that Eriksen would certainly make a good Manchester United team to a great Manchester United team.”
