It was amazing that so many people felt a need to write or send flowers,"

 Eriksen said in an extensive interview.

"It had an impact on so many people, and they felt a need to let me and my family know. That makes me very happy. At the hospital, they kept saying I'd received more and more flowers.

"It was weird, because I didn't expect people to send flowers because I'd died for five minutes.

"It was quite extraordinary, but it was very nice of everyone, and it's been a big help to me to receive all those best wishes. And people still write to me.

"I've thanked people I've met in person. I've thanked the doctors, my teammates and their families in person.

"But all the fans who've sent thousands of letters and emails and flowers, or who've come up to me on the street both in Italy and Denmark, I thank them all for the support I got from all over the world that helped me through this."

About his future, player’s agent Martin Schoots told BBC that he is considering a return to England.


Playing in England again would absolutely feel like coming home for Chris and his family,"

Schoots remarked.

"Christian has been treated exceptionally well by the British public, not only because of his top football skills, but also because of his human values, his modesty and altruism."
