Christian Eriksen and Daley Blind are still close friends and speak regularly. The Dane was asked by his former teammate at Ajax to appear in his documentary. Eriksen complied with his friend’s request and talks about it at the press conference at the Danish national team, which can be seen on images of ESPN.
‘I spoke to Daley recently, because he has released a documentary and he asked me if I wanted to appear in it,’ says Eriksen. ‘I’ve known Daley for a very long time,’ continues the Dane. ‘We practically grew up together at Ajax. And I happen to play at the club where he used to play now, so he gave me a lot of tips before I came to United.’
Blind and Eriksen therefore still speak regularly. Their most recent conversation was about the World Cup, where they will both be present with their country. ‘Our last conversation was ‘I’ll see you in the World Cup final’, says Eriksen. “In general, we just have good conversations.”
Heart problems Blind and Eriksen
In addition to their time together in the youth and the first of Ajax, Blind and Eriksen also share a less pleasant fact. Both have been dealing with heart problems in recent years, in the middle of a competition. For Eriksen, the situation was so serious that he had to be resuscitated on the field. Both Blind and Eriksen eventually recovered and continued their football careers, with the World Cup now in prospect.
