Eriksen Deserves More Support –Frank

Eriksen Deserves More Support –Frank

Brentford boss Thomas Frank believes Christian Eriksen must be shown more support as he plan to regain his football life back.

The Danish international, who suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch last summer at Euro 2020, got a standing ovation from everyone when he came on in the 52nd minute against Newcastle, a game they lost 2-0.

While Frank understands why fans reacted so positively to Eriksen coming onto the pitch, he believes they should now treat him as any other player in the squad.

Frank said: “I completely understand the circumstances which make Christian coming back to football a really big event.

“But now he has played his first game, he really wants to just speak about football and less about what happened in June.

“He wants to be treated like a normal football player — even though we know he will never be a normal football player because of what happened to him.

“For everyone involved in football, it was a big moment. It was fantastic to see the reception he received and it was a big moment for Christian and his family.

“Now he should only talk with his feet and speak about football instead of everything else.”
