Christian Eriksen returns to football, joins Brentford as a free agent

Christian Eriksen returns to football grounds after a long time.

The fan’s witnessed a heart-breaking moment as veteran footballer Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opening game of the European Championship against Finland. Since then Eriksen was training on his fitness with his former club Ajax Amsterdam.

Coach of club Brentford Thomas Frank shares a special relationship with the world-class player Eriksen as he coached the Under-17 Denmark where Thomas guided the team which involved Eriksen. According to Reuters Thomas stated that Brentford has taken an “unbelievable opportunity” to sign a deal with a world-class player Eriksen. Adding on Thomas stated that Eriksen has been working on his skills all by himself as it has been seven months he has not trained with a team.

“He is fit but we will need to get him to match fit and I am looking forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back towards his highest level,” added coach Thomas.

The previous month the doctors suggested Eriksen the permission to play football again as the player’s return to football fields was doubtful.

Eriksen will be looking ahead to work with his new club Brentford and might also be thinking of playing for Denmark once again in the World Cup.
