Christian Eriksen set for football comeback at Brentford after successful medical

Posted by

At a time when there appears to be so much negativity surrounding football and footballers, it’s always good to hear stories to warm the heart.

Christian Eriksen’s fight back to full fitness after dying on the pitch temporarily during the Euro 2020 tournament has been wonderful to watch.

The issue for the Dane was whether it would be enough to find him another club that would take him on at an elite level, in order for him to prolong his career.

Clearly, an extensive medical would have to be undertaken, and more tests than usual passed even before a decision is made.

Fortunately for the player, Brentford have been willing to take that chance, and it now seems possible that Eriksen will sign a short-term loan deal with the Bees before the current transfer window ends.

Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas tweeted that a deal until the end of the season is set to be signed after Eriksen proved his fitness by passing all the necessary medical checks.

Once he was released by Internazionale, there must surely have been a time when the Dane thought that he’d not be able to play at the top level again.

Italian football has rules in place where players who have an ICD device fitted are not permitted to earn their living in their leagues.

The Premier League are less stringent in that regard, and Frank’s encyclopaedic knowledge of Danish football has surely helped him land what will be Brentford’s most famous ever player.
