Christian Eriksen calls for "patience" with Andre Villas-Boas

Christian Eriksen says that Andre Villas-Boas needs time to blend the Tottenham Hotspur squad after the arrival of seven new players in the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has backed Andre Villas-Boas amid reports that the Portuguese coach's job is under threat at White Hart Lane.

Three games without a win have seen the North Londoners slip to ninth in the Premier League, but the Dane has called for patience as he and six other new arrivals try to find their feet in English football.

"We have a good manager," The Telegraph quotes the 21-year-old as saying. "He's really young (36). If you sit him next to Brad [Friedel, 42], then he's really young.

"He seems like he really wants us to play offensive football, doing our thing. Unluckily it hasn't been what he wished for.

"When the players understand what he wants it will get better and better. It is about patience. It's always difficult [bedding in new players]."

Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax for £11m in August.
