Christian Eriksen makes visits heart screening event in aid of CRY

Christian Eriksen and Brentford head coach Thomas Frank made a surprise visit to a heart screening session that was put on for fans in west London on Saturday.

The heart screenings was organised by the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in association with the Premier League club and took place in memory of the club’s former Technical Director Robert Rowan.

Around 200 fans and members of staff from the club were screened.

Christian Eriksen said “I think it’s very important to get the clear of something you can avoid. I think it’s very healthy thing to do. And obviously it’s something that even in my case, something happened like you wouldn’t know was going to happen. So, to get that cleared out the way from a doctor’s perspective is only a positive.”

“It’s a little emotional to stand here today because of that tragic death of Rob (Rowan). I think it’s a very good way of keep remembering a very good friend of mine and it’s such an important thing. Hopefully these tests these days will maybe save one or two lives.”
