Christian Eriksen Made History In The Europa League Final For All The Wrong Reasons
Eriksen is yet to find his footing in Italy and he started on the bench for Inter Milan in last night's final.
He came on as a second half substitute but failed to influence the game as Sevilla emerged 3-2 winners.
It means the Danish international has suffered back-to-back European heartbreak with two different clubs in two different competitions.
Christian Eriksen becomes the first player ever to lose the Champions League and Europa League final within the space of two seasons. You can take the man out of Tottenham. You can't take Tottenham out of the man.

The 28-year-old represented Tottenham Hotspur in 2019's Champions League as they lost to Liverpool in the final.
Eriksen joined Inter back in January after spending eight years in North London.
However, he scored just one goal in 17 Serie A games and has been on the bench for most of the club's run in Europe.
Reports emerged last month claiming the former Ajax man could already be heading for the exit after an underwhelming start.
MediaSet per Daily Mail have reported offers of up to £55 million will be accepted for the player.

The future of Inter boss Antonio Conte was also plunged into doubt following Friday's defeat.
He told reporters Daily Star: "Now we have to get back to Milan, will take two or three days off, then with cool heads will meet.
"It's only right that we analyse the entire season, look at everything in a very calm way, and try to plan the future of Inter, whether it's with or without me.
"I don't know. We worked hard, it was a very tough season in many ways.
"So it's only right to take a little rest, face the situations and make the decision that is best for Inter. There is absolutely no bitterness.
"There might be different views on things, but we'll evaluate everything.
"It has been difficult and we'll figure things out.
"It has been wonderful for me to be the coach of Inter, I thank the owners who allowed me to go through this great experience.
"If I can say one thing: it was worth it and I will always thank those who gave me the opportunity to have this experience."
