Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho says he will consider picking midfielder Christian Eriksen depending on his long-term plans.

Mourinho is less than a week into his job at Spurs and is still getting to know his players.

One situation he has already addressed is the future of Christian Eriksen, who is out of contract in the summer and is not going to sign a new one.

Mourinho has suggested that the Dane's selection will be affected by his long-term plans.

"My decisions about starting him or not starting, selecting or not selecting, will be based on a perspective of a future," he said.

"I cannot hide that. We have a present and in football, we have to focus on the present, in this case, the game tomorrow, but it's a club where you have to think about the future.

"These important decisions obviously they have an influence on my decisions as a head coach, but the important thing is that Christian staying or leaving, he's that type of guy who easily I could understand.

"Proper guy, loves the club, loves his colleagues, amazing colleague in the dressing room. So, it doesn't matter what, he's one of us until the last day."
