Christian Eriksen comeback: Brentford debut to come in due time

Christian Eriksen is going to need a little bit more time. That he has time at all is perhaps a gift unto itself, so you’ll have to forgive his new club for not rushing a storybook comeback.

Brentford faces Manchester City on Wednesday in its first Premier League match since Eriksen signed with the Bees as a free agent on transfer deadline day, though the Danish star won’t be active just yet. After he spent time training at former clubs of his following his mutual parting of ways with Inter Milan, the ink drying on his contract officially marked the next step in his sensational return following his near-death experience at Euro 2020. His collapse due to cardiac arrest in Denmark’s opening match against Finland is a memory etched in the minds of all who saw it, even more so for all who experienced it up close. The first time he takes to the field in a Brentford kit should inspire a different kind of lasting image, one that is eight months in the making.
