Christian Eriksen: CL football not essential for my next club

Christian Eriksen says Champions League football is "not essential" as he decides on his next club.

The Danish midfielder's contact with Brentford has expired and he has been linked with a move to former team Tottenham as well as Manchester United.

Eriksen spent the second half of the season with Brentford after recovering from the cardiac arrest he suffered while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020 but is now expected to move on.

The playmaker has suggested that the appeal of Europe's top competition will not be a decisive factor in his future.

Eriksen told Viaplay: "I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.

"I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me."

Eriksen was instrumental as he helped Brentford survive their first season in the Premier League and feels that his footballing ability will not be impacted by his health scare.

He said: "I won't change my style of play. I have had the time to be disciplined for the last six months to do extras, so even now maybe I am in a better condition than before, just the football missing.

"I feel like me so I don't see a reason why I can't get back to the same level."

Eriksen previously revealed his relief that there were plenty of paramedics in the stadium in Copenhagen to provide treatment for his cardiac arrest.

He said: "For me it was unlucky in a lucky place. I wouldn't hope anyone to get it, I never thought I would get it myself when it happened but in the place it happened I was lucky with the people around me acting so quickly. I was really grateful the doctors were in that place."
