Christian Eriksen has bolstered Brentford’s hopes of keeping him this summer by revealing he is “very happy” at the club.
The midfielder, who suffered cardiac arrest on the pitch while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020 last year, has excelled since joining Brentford on a free transfer in January.
Eriksen scored his first goal for the Bees last Saturday in the 4-1 win at Chelsea and he will be hoping to build on that when they face West Ham on Sunday.
The 30-year-old has only signed a six-month contract with Brentford, who are desperate to keep him beyond this summer, but he is happy in west London.
“Everything was quite positive, only the time of the coronavirus when I didn’t play that game at Leicester,” Eriksen said.
“But afterwards it’s been very comforting to be here. The reception from the fans, the players and the staff, really everyone, has been very happy for me. I’m very happy to be here.
“Winning 4-1 at Stamford Bridge as a team is a huge statement and it will give the whole club a lot of confidence against the top teams.
“It’s been a very emotional and great experience for me to be back and score my first goal at Stamford Bridge over the past few weeks and months.”
