Christian Eriksen Returns To England After Signing For Brentford


Christian Eriksen has signed for English Premier League club Brentford as the 29-year-old Dane bids to resume his playing career after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 in June.The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder joins Brentford until the end of the current season having not played since he collapsed during Denmark’s game against Finland in Copenhagen last year.

The 29-year-old received life-saving treatment on the pitch and was subsequently fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) device — a type of pacemaker intended to prevent fatal cardiac arrests by discharging a jolt to restore regular heart rhythm.Serie A club Inter Milan — whom Eriksen had been contracted to at the time of the incident — announced in December that he would be allowed to move abroad in order to continue his football career, with the midfielder unable to play in Italy unless the ICD device was removed.

At the end of the year, he was training with former club Odense Boldklub in Denmark, with Eriksen asserting in January that his heart was “not an obstacle” to his ambitions of a return to football and to feature at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
