Video: Brentford boss says he appreciates what Manchester United fans did for Christian Eriksen. Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Raphael Varane all scored to help Manchester United to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brentford in their final home game of the season on Monday evening. United finished the season on a high note thanks to goals from Ronaldo, Varane, and Ronaldo.
The outcome, on the other hand, was far from the most talked-about topic this evening. Several prominent members of United’s team were making their Old Trafford debuts, including Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani, and Phil Jones, all of whom were playing despite the fact that their contracts with the club were about to expire. Jesse Lingard, who is also out of contract at the end of the season, was left on the bench for the whole game.
In recent months, Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Manchester United, and the Danish midfielder is now available as a free agent following his remarkable comeback to professional football.
Although the 30-year-old suffered a heart crisis during last year’s European Championships, he has defied all expectations by returning to the Premier League in outstanding form.
When the former Tottenham hero made his way to the corner flags, he was greeted enthusiastically by the Old Trafford fans, and Brentford boss Thomas Frank has now acknowledged that he ‘liked’ that feeling.
🗣 “I love what the Manchester United fans did at the first two corners, I thought that was a nice touch and what football can do when we think about greater things.”
