Inter Milan to terminate Christian Eriksen’s contract before 2022 after his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020

December 15, 2021



Christian Eriksen’s time at Inter Milan is set to come to an end with the player and club reportedly agreeing to terminate his contract.

Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 on the pitch as Denmark played Finland.

He received life-saving treatment on the pitch at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium before being taken to a nearby hospital, where he was fitted with an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator).

The ICD is connected to the heart by wires and sends an electrical pulse in order to correct irregular rhythms. 

Eriksen is still on the books at Inter Milan but according to Italian publication Gazzetta della Sport, the contract could be terminated soon as a result of the cardiac arrest.

Rules in Italy state that people with a defibrillator like Eriksen has are not allowed to play contact sport. But the 29-year-old could theoretically continue his career in another country, with different rules.

Gazzetta della Sport are reporting that ‘Inter supports and respects Eriksen’ and that allowing to leave the club to play elsewhere is best for all parties.

Earlier this month, Danish publication BT detailed that Eriksen was using the facilities at his old club Odense at their Adalen training facility.

He did not train with the first-team squad but was able to use the facilities to work out with his personal trainer. 
Hi ‘We are really happy that Christian Eriksen is keeping in shape right now on our courts,’ Odense’s sports director, Michael Hemmingsen, told BT.

‘We have kept in touch with Christian since he left Odense, and therefore we are happy that he asked us if he could retrain in Adalen.’ 

BT’s report details that Eriksen was on one of the training pitches at 8am and was kicking the ball in some of the drills.

It is reported that he is focused on cardio work but is also incorporating a ball into some parts of his workouts.    

The Danish midfielder has played 60 times for Inter since joining the club from Tottenham 18 months ago. He helped the Italian side win their first Serie A title in 11 years last season.

During his time playing in England, Eriksen turned out over 300 times for Spurs in a six-and-a-half-year spell in north London.   

Eriksen’s ties to Odense are strong having been at the club before moving to join Ajax in Holland at the age of 16.
