Miraculously, Eriksen was resurrected and was able to continue his recovery in the hospital despite his recent revelation that he had DEAD for five minutes at that time.
The former Tottenham star opened up about the incident in a candid interview with Danish TV channel DR 1 in the first day of this month.
“It is surprising how many people feel the need to write letters or send flowers,” he said.
“It has had an impact on so many people and they felt the need to let me and my family know. It made me very happy.
“At the hospital, they kept saying I would get more and more flowers.
“It’s weird because I didn’t expect people to send flowers – because I was dead for five minutes.
“It’s quite an extraordinary thing, but the people are so nice and I’ve been a big help getting all the best wishes.
“And people still write to me.”
Watford manager Ranieri has been nominated for directing players from former club Sampdoria to award Serie A champions Inter Milan an honorary defender last season.
