Mount’s arrival from Chelsea adds to the competition for places and Eriksen has welcomed the capture of the England international, a former Champions League winner.
“I think he’s been taken very good care of,” explained the Scandinavian schemer. “I think he’s felt at home. I think, already, he doesn’t seem like he’s that new. I think he mingles in very well and fits in and is playing well.
“I mean I think everyone knows his qualities and he’s definitely a player that will add to our team in a very positive way. I definitely hope he will bring that [experience] and I’m sure he will. Like you said, he’s been in finals and he’s won them. So that’s what you want to be as a footballer. Now the aim is he can win something with us as well.”
When asked whether there will be a battle get on dead-ball duties in 2023/24, Eriksen laughed: “There will be loads on free-kicks this season, I think! I think we need to get some more free-kicks this season. But no, he’s definitely a very good kicker of the ball and, definitely, we’ll [have to] see whoever’s playing, whoever’s on the pitch. I’m sure we’ll find out who’s in the best position to take a free-kick.”
