Christian Eriksen has confirmed that he will remain at Brentford for the forthcoming season. The Dane elected to stay put despite strong interest from UTD.



“It’s always flattering to feel wanted,” Eriksen told Soccer on Sunday. “But UTD are shite, so it was a no-brainer really. Obviously it might be different if UTD weren’t shite. But they are.”

“Of course, never say never,” said the 30 year-old. “Perhaps in 2 or 3 years when ten Hag has cleared out the likes of your Maguires, your Harrys, your Wan-Bissakas, your Harry Wan-Maguires, your Phil Maguires, your Harry Jones-Bissakas — then maybe I’ll breeze into Old Trafford for a last payday.”

“Unless the likes of Grimbsy come calling,” added Eriksen. “That would be another no-brainer.”
