Club legend Lothar Matthaus claims that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen is 'not good enough' to play for Bayern Munich.

Club legend Lothar Matthaus has claimed that Bayern Munich should not involve themselves in the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen.

With less than a year remaining on his contract, Eriksen is being linked with a potential switch to any one of several top European clubs in the summer.

However, despite no transfer fee being involved, Matthaus does not want to see the Denmark international arrive at the Bundesliga champions.

Matthaus told Sport 1: "I've been following the player for a long time and so far in 2019 he has disappointed me. A transfer to Bayern wouldn't make sense in my view, and would be very surprising.

"If he's not enough for Tottenham, he's not good enough for Bayern. Uli Hoeness has also said before that Bayern doesn't need any substitutes. Eriksen is a fine technician, a typical number 10, but he's too slow, and Niko Kovac likes fast players.

"For me, Eriksen is not the kind of player who makes the difference at the highest level, so concentrate on the transfer of Kai Havertz next summer, and you still have Philippe Coutinho, who plays well as a ten."

Eriksen has contributed just one goal and one assist from his 10 outings in the Premier League and Champions League this season.
