Eriksen carries Laudrup's legacy

Ask the majority of football fans to think of Denmark's greatest ever player, and their response will invariably be Michael Laudrup.

So it makes it all the more flattering for Christian Eriksen, Denmark's latest prodigy, to be touted as Laudrup's successor in the national team. "It's crazy to be compared with Michael Laudrup," said the attacking midfielder in an exclusive interview with "After all, he was a very special player and I still have a long way to go. I'm just trying to be myself and we'll have to wait and see if I can be as good as Michael. It's certainly not going to be easy."

The story is too old to be commented.
