Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen has taken to social media to thank Brentford after his six-month spell with the Bees came to an end.

The Denmark international made his sensational return to football after joining the west London club on deadline day in January following the mutual termination of his contract at Inter.

After suffering a horrific cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last summer, Eriksen looked like his old self in west London and played a crucial role in helping Brentford finish 13th in their maiden Premier League season.

90min long reported that Brentford were hopeful of keeping Eriksen for longer than his initial six-month contract, though faced significant competition from former club Tottenham and Man Utd.

Spurs cooled their interest in June and the 30-year-old has since signed for Man Utd.

Taking to social media, Eriksen thanked the Bees for an unforgettable experience.

"Thank you everyone at Brentford. It's been a pleasure playing for you all!" Eriksen wrote on his Instagram story.

"Just being around the training ground, stadium, or anywhere around Brentford has been something I will never forget. See you all very soon."

Eriksen could make his Man Utd debut at Brentford on the second weekend of the new Premier League season.

In the meantime, he will remain in England and will not join up with Erik ten Hag's squad for the rest of their tour of Australia and Asia.
