Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen admits he would love to have a Champions League final victory on his CV.

The 27-year-old Denmark international has spent the last six years with Spurs but has yet to win any silverware with the club.

Spurs have not actually won a trophy since 2008 although they have finished in the top four in the Premier League in each of the last four campaigns and become Champions League regulars.

After nearly being knocked out in the group stage of this season’s Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino’s team have flourished, beating Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Ajax in thrilling fashion.

They are 2.50 to beat Liverpool in Saturday’s Champions League final in Madrid and lift the trophy, while Jurgen Klopp’s team are 1.53 to come out on top. “We will not lie down,” said Eriksen.

“We dream we will stand with the trophy – that’s what we see in our heads. But we know it won’t come easy.

“I came to Spurs six years ago and it’s been an upwards curve since. We’ve been in the top four for many years and have been in the Champions League. It would be statement to be able to win this competition.

“It’s something really special and something a footballer dreams about. I would love to have that on my CV.”

Eriksen has featured in more than 200 Premier League matches for Sours since moving to north London from Ajax in a £12.5million deal in August 2013.
