Cape Town - Christian Eriksen's agent has moved to allay fears that a stomach injury could sideline the Tottenham play-maker for a lengthy spell.

The Denmark international has been forced to sit out the last four games for Spurs and was left out of Age Hareide's squad for this month's fixtures against the Republic of Ireland and Austria.

Commenting on the absence of his star player, Hareide said on Monday: "Such an injury can be chronic, and it is true that Tottenham also fear that."

However, Martin Schoots insists his client is on the mend and that Hareide's remarks have been misinterpreted.

"Some international media have translated Hareide's words badly," Schoots told Standard Sport. "Christian has no chronic injuries - nobody has said that.

"He just has an injury related to some fatigue and, for that reason, he is having some rest. That is normal because otherwise it would not heal.

"Somebody has not translated well. Christian is doing everything to be back as soon as possible."

The 26-year-old has made seven appearances in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino's side this season, but was sorely missed at Wembley last week as they lost 4-2 to Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League group stages.
