“We have seized an incredible opportunity to bring a world-class player to Brentford. He hasn’t trained with a team for seven months, but he has done a lot of work on his own. He is fit but we will need him to be fit for the match and I look forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back to his highest level,” he said.

“At its best, Christian has the ability to decide the matches. He can find the right passes and is a goal threat. He also has very, very good shots from set pieces, both from corners and direct free kicks. He is a player who will find a solution to the problem in front of him. Christian will also bring his top-level football experience to the club. I hope it will have an impact in the locker room,” he added.

Phil Giles, director of football at Brentford, explained that they began to analyze the possibility of his incorporation when they found out that he would leave Inter. “Naturally, the process of signing Christian was longer than most transfers. I understand that many people will have questions about the process. To respect Christian’s medical confidentiality, we will not go into details,” he said.

“Brentford fans can be sure that we have done everything to ensure that Christian is in the best possible shape to return to competitive football. Now that Christian has made the decision to sign for Brentford, all parties want to focus squarely on football,” Giles continued, adding that they are “confident that Christian will have a huge impact at Brentford and in the Premier League of here at the end of the season.”
