Eriksen named in BBC Team of the Season

Recognition for Christian's impact at Brentford

4 June 2022

Christian Eriksen has been named in the BBC Sport Team of the Season. Pundit Garth Crooks chose his team after the end of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign. Christian was in his XI.

Christian joined Brentford in January after a spell out of football, having suffered a cardiac arrest a year ago. He played 11 games for Brentford, scoring once and contributing four assists. He helped The Bees finish 13th in the Premier League

Crooks said: "Some readers may be a little surprised to see Christian Eriksen in my team selection. I'm amazed he's playing professional football at all. To suffer a cardiac arrest while playing for your country must have been a life-changing experience.

"To come back from it, return to the game and then transform a team, as he has done, is quite remarkable. His performances for Brentford have been outstanding and it's great to have him back."
