Rangnick labels Eriksen recovery ´an absolute miracle´

“It’s a miracle,” says Austrian general manager Ralph Rannik, “let alone playing football again without any worries.”

A year ago, Erickson suffered a heart attack while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020 against Finland and returned to life on the field.

However, the 30-year-old Italy international has been ruled out of action due to a cardioverter-defibrillator.

Brentford offered him a six-month contract in midfield in January, assisting the Bees with one goal and four assists away from the relegation zone.

Thomas Frank is wanted by Manchester United and his former club Tottenham, but there is still hope of keeping Erickson at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Speaking ahead of the Austrian League League clash with Denmark on Monday, Rennick said he could not believe Erickson returned to football on June 12, a year after the incident.

“It is a miracle. [that Christian Eriksen is still alive]. “I remember the image of the team forming a circle while he was being treated,” Rannik told reporters.

“It was really a matter of life and death. Months later, six months later, he could not believe that anyone could play football again.

“I talked to Esper. [Schmeichel] Before the game, he said he didn’t care about him, and he didn’t care. [Eriksen] Erickson enjoys it so he has no problem playing it.

“And when something like this happens to you, it’s very unusual for you to finish your work and play again without any worries. This is unusual.”
