Held in check by Tottenham (0-0), this Saturday, on the occasion of the 34th day of the Premier League, Brentford, eleventh in the standings, can still welcome the return to grace of a man. Sparkling in the Bees jersey since his return to English lawns, and above all on the football pitch after his heart attack at Euro 2020, Christian Eriksen (30) is once again dazzling Her Majesty’s Kingdom with his talent and of his class with the ball at his feet. Author of 2 assists and 1 goal in 7 matches this season, the Danish attacking midfielder especially allows the formation led by Thomas Frank to display an attractive level of play. An impressive performance that does not go unnoticed across the Channel.
Returning to Ajax at the start of the year as he continued his recovery from this almost fatal cardiac arrest, Eriksen had already impressed Erik ten Hag, current coach of Ajacides. At that time, the Dutch team had even considered offering a new contract to their protege, trained at the club, but had finally resigned themselves for fear of his state of health and his ability to perform again at the highest level. But like the whole football world, Erik ten Hag continued to watch with admiration the Danish international’s incredible return to competition (111 caps, 38 goals). Even to the point of making it a priority target for the next transfer window of the Red Devils? Yes according to Daily Star.
Erik ten Hag will have to fight for Christian Eriksen!
Convinced of the contribution that the native of Middelfart could represent to the Mancunian workforce, ten Hag would have placed the former midfielder of Spurs on the list of his desires. Optimistic, the Batavian technician intends to take advantage of the contractual situation of the former Interist. Indeed, after only signing a short-term contract with the West Londoners, Eriksen could leave freely this summer, which inevitably makes him more attractive to the Red Devils board, ready to do anything to return to the heights of the English championship. A mission that promises to be difficult despite everything as the lust for him increases weekend after weekend. With that in mind, current Spurs manager Antonio Conte, who has previously said he would be open to working with Eriksen again after being together at Inter Milan, spoke out again after the conceded draw against the Bees.
“First of all, I was happy to see Christian play and to play that way. You know very well that talking now about the transfer market of players who are not in my team, I think it is a lack of respect for the team for which the player plays and also for my players. Of course, I worked with him for two years at Inter Milan and I appreciated that. I’m very happy to see him in such fantastic shape because don’t forget just eight months ago what happened. Now I’m happy to see Christian playing football at this type of level.”, said Conte. While Manchester United will most certainly have to prepare for fierce competition from Spurs, Erik ten Hag will also have to convince the player that the new challenge on offer at the Old Trafford side is worth taking on. What’s more when we now know the popularity rating he has at Brentford.
Interviewed by Sky Sports After his team’s draw, Thomas Frank explained that he wanted Christian Eriksen to stay with the Bees at the end of the season: “I would like to say that I am confident, I am very positive and I hope he stays but it will be a decision at the end of the season. I’ll do what I can but it’s Christian, it’s like everything if you decide to go to one club or another, you buy this house or another house, you take this job or another job. There have to be pros and cons and I always say if you make an eight-two decision, where you have eight pros and two cons, then you’re in a good position. I hope Christian makes the right choice for him and his family and I really hope it’s us.”, explained the Danish coach. To be continued…
