Christian Eriksen has hit back at a false online rumour his wife had affair with his Tottenham team-mate Jan Vertonghen, labelling them "bulls***".

Both Eriksen and Vertonghen took to Twitter today to slam the gossip involving Sabrina Kvist Jensen, which emerged at the weekend.

A tweet was posted alongside pictures of both Eriksen and Vertonghen alleging a rift between the Spurs stars, which saw Harry Kane get involved.

The tweet read: "Tottenham Hotspur FC. 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 [sic] to each other, Eriksen said he's not in a good place to play football.

"Pochettino unable to resolve the situation, likely to join Real Madrid in the summer and take Eriksen with him and possibly Kane."

Erkisen shot down the wild rumour, quote-tweeting the post with the response: "bulls***".

Vertonghen also responded to the tweet with three fed-up face emojis, in response to the allegation, and a love heart to show his support for Eriksen.

Eriksen and Sabrina began dating in 2012 and live in London with their young son.

Kvist was born in Tommerup in Denmark, less than an hour away from Eriksen's home town.

A trained hairdresser, Kvist completed her education on the continent before moving to England to join her partner as he made his way at Spurs.

She worked for a clothing company and they bought a house together in Hampstead in 2016.

The couple welcomed their first child, a son, in June 2018, with Eriksen granted leave from the Denmark World Cup squad just before the tournament to travel back for the birth.

The pair have generally preferred to keep a low profile.

Both Eriksen and Vertonghen featured for Tottenham in the Champions League on Tuesday night as they were battered by Bayern Munich.

The German giants put seven past the north London club, with former Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry running riot.

"When you receive this type of result, it's important to believe in yourself," Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino told BT Sport after the match. "That is the only way to recover the good feeling."

He added: "We dominated the game in the first 30 minutes. We were unlucky we were conceded at the end of the first half and after that they were very clinical.

"After we scored the penalty for 4-2, we had chances to score a third and be in the game. It's a tough result. It's hard to accept. In football it happens when the opponent has the quality and is very clinical in front of goal."
