According to British newspaper Mirror, Brentford manager, Thomas Frank, said about Christian Eriksen's future: "I'm optimistic about his possible stay, I'm the one who picked up the phone and asked him to come. He helped the team, and we helped him get back to his soccer life."
Erisken at Brentford and heart attack
On January 31, 2022, after training on his behalf at the Riva IV Stadium in Chiasso, and for a week with Jong Ajax, he was hired on a free transfer by Brentford, joining the English until the end of the season.
On the following 26 February, just over seven months after the cardiac arrest accused in the European championship, he returns to play an official match, replacing compatriot Mathias Jensen in the home defeat against Newcastle Utd (0-2), valid for the 27th day of Premier League.
The following week he played his first as a starter at Norwich City, staying on the pitch for the full 90 minutes and contributing to the final 3-1 victory. He scored his first goal for Brentford the following April 2, in a 4-1 win at Chelsea.
At Euro 2020, during the first match of Group B, played on 12 June 2021 at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen against Finland, he suffered a cardiac arrest, falling unconscious to the ground during the last minutes of the first half.
After regaining consciousness thanks to the aid provided to him in the field by the health staff, he is transferred to the hospital. The game is suspended to resume less than two hours later, with the news that his conditions are stable, and end with a 1-0 victory for the Finns.
Due to illness his European ended prematurely, but Denmark still managed to reach an unexpected semi-final against England, finally losing 2-1 at the end of extra time. After the resumption of competitive activity, he is again called up for the national team in March 2022, in view of the friendlies against the Netherlands and Serbia.
He returns to the field on March 26, right in the match against the Dutch national team, which took place at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. On the same occasion he also finds the goal, scoring the goal of the momentary 3-2 in favor of the hosts.
He repeats himself in the next friendly against the Serbian national team, played on March 29 in Copenhagen, finding the final goal 3-0. He thus reaches 38 goals in the national team, overtaking Michael Laudrup and hooking Preben Elkjær to fifth place in the all-time ranking of the top scorers of the Danish selection.
