Brentford Won’t Take Risks With Eriksen’s Health -Frank

Brentford boss Thomas Frank insists the club will not take risks with Christian Eriksen’s health.

The midfielder has arrived for his first training session at the club this week, following his free transfer move in the January transfer window.

The 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest in the summer of 2021 at Euro 2020, and subsequently had his contract with Inter Milan cancelled.

Asked about Eriksen, Frank told reporters during his virtual press conference: Frank said: “Of course I could say something around it but I like to see how he is because we want to hit that perfect balance where we push him, of course, but also he needs to be in a good place because he hasn’t trained with a team for seven months.

“I think it’s important that you don’t get a minor injury and setback – even though he’s got a fine, strong foundation to stand on.

“He’s looking good but we are also pretty sure we need to get some match minutes into him in a friendly before we put him out there, to just get used to having players around you for at least 45 minutes before we put him out on the big scene.

“Of course we’ve got all the data and all of his injury status and all that history. But to know him and all the small bits about his body to come back to his top pace again we need to speak to him daily.

“That will be an ongoing process over the next one, two or three weeks until he gets into a normal rhythm hopefully.”
