Eriksen still has ‘major ambitions’ to achieve after completing Utd move

Christian Eriksen is excited to work under Erik ten Hag and still has “major ambitions” to achieve in his career after completing a move to Manchester United.

The Denmark international was confirmed as United’s second window signing on Friday.

Following the arrival of full-back Tyrell Malacia, he signed a three-year contract.

It caps a remarkable year for Eriksen, who was brought back to life on the pitch after suffering a cardiac arrest when playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020 last July.

After being told he could not play for Inter on medical grounds.

In January, Eriksen was offered a route back into top-flight football by Premier League side Brentford.

And he is now relishing the chance to get going at heavyweights United.

He told his new club’s official website:

“Manchester United is a particular club, and I cannot wait to start.

“I have had the privilege of playing at Old Trafford many times, but to do it in the red shirt of United will be an amazing feeling.”

To highlight Eriksen’s importance, he created 30 chances following his Bees bow in March, with only Martin Odegaard (38) and Kevin De Bruyne (42) topping the division over the period.

Indeed, between making his debut on March 5 and the end of the season.

Only six Premier League teams earned more points than Brentford (22 from 11 games).

“I have seen Erik’s work at Ajax and know the level of detail.

“And preparation he and his staff put into daily.
