Thomas Frank hails ‘incredible’ Christian Eriksen and identifies ‘five best plays’ in Brentford’s first start, says Danish midfielder can improve


Thomas Frank has hailed the “incredible” Christian Eriksen, who was instrumental in Brentford’s crucial win at Norwich.

The Bees won 3-1 at Carrow Road thanks to Ivan Toney’s hat-trick, with Eriksen playing a part in their first and second goals.

His corner was grazed by Kristoffer Ajer before Toney volleyed in the opener. Meanwhile, the second came via the penalty spot as Ben Gibson was penalized for a high boot on Pontus Jansson, who attacked Eriksen’s corner from the right. Toney added his third with another kick after being fouled by Gibson.

It was a welcome sight for all to see the Dane back on the pitch after suffering cardiac arrest for his country at Euro 2020.

He even got into a lighthearted fight with Brandon Williams which ultimately brought both players a smile.

As for his performance in the game, Frank was impressed with it, but said there were aspects that could be improved.

On Eriksen’s performance, Frank told talkSPORT: “I would say amazing, I would say the 90 minutes [was] fantastic.”

“As I said earlier and in some press conferences, it would take some time for him to reach that high level.

“But you still saw three, four, five high level action, I think the delivery for the first goal, I think there were balls behind for his teammates where you could just see ‘wow, that’ is another level”.

“But also in situations where he could have done a bit better, done better with the ball, which is good.

“We just want him at the highest level.

“But for him a great moment last week, a great moment today and 90 minutes, so very good.”
