Arsenal youth team coach, Jack Wilshere has hailed Manchester United midfielder, Christian Eriksen, likening the Dane to Red Devils’ hero, Michael Carrick.
Wilshere backed the Denmark international to be a ‘big player’ for Manchester United this season.
United signed former Ajax, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Brentford star Eriksen on a free transfer over the summer.
The 30-year-old, who joined the Red Devils over the summer transfer window, produced his best United performance to date on Sunday when he helped the Old Trafford landlords win their fourth game in a row.
“Not many players have got the vision he’s got,” Wilshere told Premier League productions.
“But he gives you creativity.
“The pass [in the build-up to United’s opening goal against Arsenal], it’s almost like a Michael Carrick pass.
“If Christian Eriksen can keep himself fit and healthy, he will be a big player for Manchester United.”
