Former Tottenham midfielder, Christian Eriksen has joined Brentford on a six-month deal.
The Denmark international suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s match against Finland at Euro 2020 last June, and has not played since then.
Considering the state of ailment, he was subsequently fitted with an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) – a type of pacemaker.
Head coach, Thomas Frank who made comments about the 29-year-old the situation said,
“We have taken an unbelievable opportunity to bring a world-class player to Brentford,”
On his recent feat, Eriksen won the league title with Inter Milan last season, but his health condition prompted Inter Milan to give him conditions.
Both the Italians and Eriksen agreed to cancel his contract in December because players fitted with an ICD cannot compete in Serie A
Although, in the English Premier League, such regulation is a different thing entirely.
