Christian Eriksen has emphatically denied internet reports that Tottenham team-mate, Jan Vertonghen had an affair with his girlfriend, describing them as ‘bulls***’, reports

Rumours on social media have recently suggested the Belgian defender romanced Eriksen’s girlfriend Sabrina Kvist, which then sparked a huge bust-up in the Spurs dressing room with England captain Harry Kane.

However, the day after Spurs’ embarrassing 7-2 Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich, Eriksen took to Twitter to strongly refute claims of an affair that was dividing the dressing room.

Replying to a tweet that @CasualMind_ posted regarding the online rumours, Eriksen replied with ‘#bulls***’ and a sleeping face emoji.


Vertonghen then replied to Eriksen’s tweet with a series of emojis that seemed to show he agreed with his team-mate. He added a love heart emoji next to Eriksen’s Twitter handle.

Eriksen and Kvist have been together since 2012 and their first child, Alfred, was born in 2018.

The version of events that was included in the tweet alleged a series of things from the affair with ‘Eriksen’s wife’, even though they are not married, and that Mauricio Pochettino was planning on taking Eriksen and Kane with him to Real Madrid next summer.

It read: ‘Jan Vertonghen caught sleeping with Christian Eriksen wife. Harry Kane got involved, big dressing room bust up.

‘Club refusing to offer Vertonghen a new contract. Eriksen was due to join Real Madrid but personal reasons stopped the deal. Half the players not taking (talking) to each other, Eriksen said he’s not in a good place to play football.
