A new man. At 30, Christian Eriksen has changed. Since June 12 and his heart attack during the Denmark-Finland match at the Euro, the midfielder has been wearing a pacemaker. Despite this terrible ordeal, he kept smiling and grew stronger as a person. But the footballer he is has not really changed in the background as he admitted in March when he was in the national team.

A strong comeback

“Mentally, I’m still the same footballer. I still have quality, I know that. I don’t feel any different in this area than before. I’m happy to show that I’m still the same footballer.”. Indeed, since his big return to the field, the native of Middelfart proves that his talent is still there. Free since the termination of his contract at Inter Milan in December, he has returned to service at Brentford in the Premier League.

A championship that allows footballers to play with a pacemaker, which was not the case in Serie A. On February 26, he played his first minutes 287 days after his heart attack. It was against Newcastle (39 minutes played). He then chained 90 minutes against Norwich (March 5) and Burnley (March 12) before making his comeback in the Danish selection. And what a return! Eriksen has scored twice.

Brentford wants to keep him

The first time against the Netherlands (4-2 defeat) and the second against Serbia (3-0 victory). A return to grace hailed by the whole country.

To be honest, I know Christian very well and one thing he’s good at is just enjoying the moment. I think he appreciates it even more today.”.

English cadors are on the spot

He then added: “So we don’t think too much about what’s going to happen in two or three months. I’m just very happy that he plays for us. It’s no secret that I want him to continue next season. I know Christian really likes to be back. I know I’m going to have to answer this question until the end of the season, so let’s see what happens.”. But behind the scenes, Brentford hope the player will show loyalty as clarified by the DailyMail.

The British publication adds, however, that the mission is likely to be difficult. Indeed, the midfielder’s return to prominence has caught the eye of several suitors. Thus, in addition to Chelsea who were able to get an idea of ​​his level this weekend, Manchester United and Tottenham would be ready to welcome him this summer. The Spurs have never forgotten this former home, who knows Antonio Conte perfectly since his time at Inter Milan. A coach who has already expressed his interest.
