sport">The contracts have yet to be worked out, but Eriksen has reached an oral agreement with the English. Ten Hag had him high on his wish list after he saw how high the Dane’s level was again early after the comeback in professional football.
sport">The Danish midfielder, who has been coached by the Dutchman Martin Schoots throughout his career, was already approached in January by three Eredivisie clubs, including Feyenoord and PSV, to be the first in the Netherlands to make his return on the fields after the rehabilitation of his cardiac arrest.
Superior time Brentford
sport">Eriksen (29) was also able to go to clubs in the Bundesliga and clubs outside Europe. It was remarkable that Ajax never came into the picture for him during the winter. The Dane then went to work at Brentford, where he had a superior time and pulled the whole club up. Subsequently, all clubs approached him, including Manchester United, Newcastle United, Everton, his old club Tottenham Hotspur and, according to insiders, finally Ajax again.
sport">But the Dane, who already left Ajax at the age of 21 and signed a lucrative and long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur, has especially liked life in England with his family and is therefore aiming at an extension of his adventure in England.
sport">Eriksen is feeling top fit again and is back in top condition thanks to months of meticulous rehabilitation and high-level training. In the Premier League and in the Danish national team, he has proved that he is back in the form of his life. Now he wants to add wonderful years to his already impressive career at Manchester United.
sport">A return to Italy, where he won another national title at Inter, was impossible due to the regulations surrounding top athletes with a built-in ICd box.
cause a stir
sport">The minuscule icd box is an extra security. “Actually, Christian is better protected than anyone else,” said one of the medics who assisted him recently.
sport">In his Ajax period, Eriksen already caused a stir by already putting five main prizes behind his name, just like Johan Cruijff at the age of 21. Few players in the history of Ajax have managed to do that. And together with the legendary number fourteen, he is even the only one who had three national titles at Ajax at that young age.
