Its clear we would like to continue with Christian Eriksen, admits Thomas Frank
Frank hopes to keep Eriksen at Brentford|
Brentford manager Thomas Frank has admitted that the Premier League club would like to keep Christian Eriksen beyond the current season and indicated that the Danish international is enjoying his football at the club. The Bees signed Eriksen on a free transfer in the January transfer window.
Christian Eriksen was the source of concern last summer as he collapsed onto the pitch in Denmark's opening group stage match in Euro 2020. The Danish midfielder required medical assistance on the pitch before he was taken off the pitch on a stretcher as he had suffered a cardiac arrest. The 29-year-old was later stabilized in a hospital and soon began to start his recovery process.
The attacking midfielder suffered another blow pertaining to his playing career as he found that he couldn't continue playing with Inter while he had a defibrillator, which was required for his recovery, due to the rules in Italy.
This eventually led to the mutual termination of Eriksen’s contract as announced in December that Inter had terminated their contract with the 29-year-old in order to allow the midfielder to prolong his playing career elsewhere.
Brentford signed the Danish midfielder in January on a free transfer and Eriksen has made a bright start to life back in England as he has scored a goal and provided an assist in three appearances for his new side. Eriksen also made a triumphant return to the national team as he scored goals in both of Denmark's games against Netherlands and Serbia.
"I don't think it is any secret that, of course, we would like to continue. I'm pretty convinced that Christian is enjoying it here. But [I'm] also convinced that nothing will be decided before the end of the season from either side, so I guess I'll get a lot of these questions every Friday. I think it is clear that we would like to continue with Christian,"” Thomas Frank told reporters in his pre-match press conference.
