The Nerazzurri have given an update on the Danish midfielder’s condition, while also revealing the next steps he will take in his recovery
Christian Eriksen has visited Inter’s training facility for the first time since his Euro 2020 collapse while the midfielder continues to wait for his career to resume.
Eriksen suffered a health shock during Denmark’s first group match against Finland at the European Championship, which sent shock waves through the football world.
The 29-year-old had to be resuscitated on the field after he had stopped breathing and then taken to hospital for tests. Doctors later confirmed a cardiac arrest.
What was said
Eriksen was released from hospital after six days under observation but had to watch from the sidelines as his Danish teammates made it to the EM semi-finals and it is not yet known whether he will be released to play competitive again.
However, Inter have confirmed the playmaker made his long-awaited return to the club on Wednesday while giving an update on his condition and the next stage of his recovery.
“This morning Christian Eriksen visited the Suning Training Center in Eppan Gentile,” said a Nerazzurri statement official website reads.
“The Danish midfielder met the management, the coach, the team-mates and everyone present. Eriksen is fine and in excellent physical and mental health.”
“He will now follow the recovery program proposed by Danish doctors in Copenhagen, which will also coordinate clinical follow-up. Inter’s medical staff will of course be kept informed throughout the process.”
Will Eriksen play for Inter again?
Before he left the hospital, Eriksen was given an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), which is supposed to regulate further disturbances in his heartbeat.
The Inter star’s former Ajax teammate Daley Blind was able to resume his career with the help of the device, but the current Serie A rules prohibit use in the Italian premier league.
A member of the Italian Football Association’s technical and scientific committee, Francesco Braconaro, said of the steps Eriksen would have to take to get back to work at Inter: “Christian Eriksen cannot be given the all-clear to play in Italy Player removes the defibrillator, confirming the pathology can be fixed, then can play for Inter again. “
