Many Tottenham fans oppose the club over the claim that Christian Eriksen is a free-kick specialist.
Dane was one of the club’s key players and was responsible for both free-kick and corner-kick set pieces.
Midfielder moved to Inter Milan in more than 200 league matches in Tottenham from 2013 to 2020.
During his time at the club, he was the envy of his rivals as his midfield performance helped keep Tottenham in the top six clubs.
He was good at scoring free kicks, but went on for a long time without scoring, but the club posted to their Twitter account that he was a specialist.
They posted a video of him scoring a free kick against Norwich City in the 2019/2020 season and captioned the post: “Set Piece Specialists”
However, some fans claimed he was bad in the corner and others claimed he hadn’t won a free kick for a long time.
I went for several years without deciding on a free kick.Specialists are a little exaggerated

Then I didn’t become one player on this team who could take a free kick.Very pathetic

How did he move from scoring five free kicks in the season to scoring once every few years?

But he wasn’t really a set piece specialist.

Except that he went everywhere for spurious in the seven years he was there and never beat the first man! Passersby, good goal scorer, great free kick taker, and great player hell. But the “set piece” in his corner was bloody and terrible!
