Christian Eriksen - "United, it was meant to be"

Listen on

Episode notes

Christian Eriksen has been missed in the Manchester United midfield but the Dane is on his way back and joined us for the latest episode of the UTD Podcast.


The classy playmaker discusses his career to date and the rumours of a move to Old Trafford, which long circulated before he did end up joining the Reds last summer. He recalls playing in Denmark, the Netherlands and Italy, plus adjusting to the style and pace of the Premier League.


He addresses the obstacles he has overcome and explains why he left Italy, swapping Inter Milan for Brentford. He admits he was bowled over by the response from football fans, in general, to his return to action and his time with the Bees helped lead to finally pulling on the United shirt, to join Erik ten Hag’s new project here.


Hosts Helen Evans, Sam Homewood and David May ask about his relationship with the manager, what the future has in store for the side, his partnership with Casemiro in the midfield and, of course, when we can expect to see him back on the pitch. 


This is another outstanding podcast which allows you to know more about Christian – make sure you give it a listen!
