Brandon Williams and Christian Eriksen shared a heartwarming moment on the pitch as the Norwich City defender angrily confronted the Brentford midfielder before quickly realizing who it was.

Eriksen, who returned to football eight months after suffering cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last week, pulled Williams down during Norwich’s Premier League game against Brentford on Saturday.

Williams looked furious as he touched the turf and grabbed Eriksen’s shirt.

But as a loan The Manchester United full-back wanted to do so, he quickly realized Eriksen had brought him down and opted to hug the Danish midfielder instead.

Eriksen, who has signed a contract with Brentford until the end of the season, is the first known Premier League player to have an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) following his cardiac arrest last year.

Brentford, meanwhile, secured a 3-1 win over Norwich to bolster hopes of being relegated from the Premier League.

Speaking about Eriksen’s performance after the game, Brentford manager Thomas Frank told talkSPORT: “I would say unbelievable, I would say the 90 minutes [was] Fantastic.

“As I said earlier and in some press conferences, it would take him some time to reach that top level.

“But you still saw three, four, five top actions, I think delivery for the first goal, I think there was some balls for his teammates where you could just see, wow, that’s another levels”.

“But also in situations where he could have been a little bit better, better on the ball, which is good.

“We only want him at the top level.

“But for him, a big moment last week, a big moment today and 90 minutes, so very good.”
