Christian Eriksen blasts rumour his partner had affair with Jan Vertonghen

A vile rumour circulated on social media involving Christian Eriksen's partner and Jan Vertonghen but the Tottenham star has set the record straight

Christian Eriksen has angrily slapped down rumours of a dressing room bust-up with Tottenham team-mate Jan Vertonghen.

Unfounded speculation on social media alleged that Eriksen's partner was caught in a compromising situation with the defender.

It incorrectly claims that Spurs captain Harry Kane even reportedly stepped in to try and resolve the situation - but to no avail.

The Denmark international was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid over the summer.

But a transfer never materialised, and Eriksen's form has been well below its usual level so far this season.

And amid the circulating rumours, the former Ajax star has taken to Twitter to deny the claims regarding his personal life.

He quoted a tweet which seemed to be the source of the claims and simply added the word: "Bulls**t," with a sleeping face emoji.

The original post also included two photos of Vertonghen with a black eye.

The tweet, which comes from an unverified account with almost 100,000 followers, went into more detail about the atmosphere in the Spurs dressing room.

It claims that 'half the players are not talking to each other' and that Eriksen 'has told Pochettino he is not in a good place to play football'.

Tottenham were hammered 7-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last night, one of the worst results in the club's history.

And boss Mauricio Pochettino is coming under increasing pressure after a disappointing start to the season.

Playmaker Eriksen has scored just once so far this term, having been regularly benched by his Argentine manager.

Vertonghen, meanwhile, is out of contract in the summer and looks set to leave the club.

Indeed the speculative tweet claims that he is not being offered a contract extension due to the alleged bust up.

Tottenham face a trip to Brighton on Saturday as they look to get a much-needed win under their belts.
