Christian Eriksen Receives Thunderous Applause From Tottenham Fans And Signs Shirt In Emotional Scenes

Christian Eriksen received an incredible reception from Tottenham Hotspur fans following their 0-0 draw with Brentford.


Eriksen spent seven years with Spurs and made over 300 appearances for the club before joining Inter Milan in 2020.

He's back in the Premier League with the Bees after suffering a cardiac arrest at last summer's European Championship and Saturday evening's clash was an emotional affair.

At full-time, Eriksen embraced his former teammates and made his way over to the away fans inside the Brentford Community Stadium.

One held up a shirt with the 30-year-old's name on the back and Eriksen leaned in for a chat. He then signed the shirt as legions of Spurs fans chanted his name.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they think it could be one of the most wholesome moments of the season.

One commented: "Only positive from today was watching that man play football. What a player."

Another said: "A top bloke, football is a better place with Christian Eriksen in it."

A third put: "Eriksen got me choked up. Pure class."

While someone tweeted: "This video made my day."

Spurs failed to register a shot on target for a second consecutive game while Brentford had a number of chances.

Pontus Jansson came close for Thomas Frank's side, with Harry Kane clearing his effort off the line. Ivan Toney also hit the post.

Eriksen himself nearly got on the scoresheet if not for a smart save from Hugo Lloris.

The Denmark international spoke to Sky Sports post-match and admitted he still follows Spurs and wants them to get into the top four.

When asked if he's a fan, he replied: "Yeah of course. I'm still a Spurs fan, ask anyone here. I think anyone who has played for Spurs is still a Spurs fan when they leave. I hope they get in the Champions League for sure.

Spurs sit in fifth and two points behind bitter rivals Arsenal as they battle for that final Champions League place.

Arsenal defeated Manchester United 3-1 earlier on Saturday and the two sides meet in a huge clash on May 12.
