​Eriksen reveals pain informing Brentford boss Frank of Man Utd decision

Manchester United star Christian Eriksen admitted that it hurt him to tell Brentford boss Thomas Frank about his departure from the club.

Eriksen was with the Bees for the second half of last season on a short-term contract.

While Brentford had expected him to sign a new deal in the summer, Eriksen chose to move on to Manchester United instead.

He told TV3 Sport about the move: “Yes, of course it did [hurt to leave].

“What they (Brentford) had done for me in those six months was absolutely great. It is something that I will always remember. It is absolutely certain.

“If I were to stay in London, it was the security of knowing where you were. If it was Brentford, then that was where we lived and where our children would go to school. We had that in place.

“But at the same time there were the ambitions and the opportunities. For me, it was probably the last opportunity to come up to such a big club as United.”
