Denmark coach Olsen advises Eriksen to stay put

 
 

COPENHAGEN (REUTERS) - Denmark football coach Morten Olsen has advised playmaker Christian Eriksen to stay with Dutch club Ajax and not be tempted by a move to another European league.

"He's still only 20 years' old, but he's a player who is developing all the time," Olsen told Denmark's TV2 Sport.

"He's played two, three years and been a champion a couple of times, he's played over 25 internationals and been in a lot of Champions League games.

"(A move) would be a bad idea. There are many positives (with Ajax), they play for the title, they're at the top, they're regularly in the Europa League playing big games."
