Soccer-Brentford boss hails Eriksen fairytale after defeat of Chelsea

Brentford shock Chelsea 4-1 with Eriksen on target

Brentford coach Thomas Frank hailed the “ongoing fairytale” of Christian  Eriksen’s comeback following the near-fatal cardiac arrest he suffered  during last year’s European Championship as the Dane played a key role  in Saturday’s shock 4-1 win over Chelsea.

“From the beginning I thought OK, he’s been checked, everything has been checked in his entire body,” Frank said.

“I was actually not in doubt… I never knew how quick it would take to get up to this level.”

Thomas Tuchel said he will not create a drama after Chelsea’s buildup for their Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid was rocked by a shock 4-1 defeat to Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea Supporters' Trust (CST) said on Saturday that 77% of its members do not support the Ricketts family's bid for the Premier League club, in the wake of a fan backlash over previous racist remarks by members of the family. The announcement comes on the same day a small group of fans staged a protest outside Stamford Bridge against the Ricketts bid ahead of Chelsea's clash with Brentford.
