Christian Eriksen is reportedly stepping up his efforts to return to football in 2022 after his cardiac arrest in the summer, but it seems increasingly unlikely that he will return to Italy.

Eriksen is still on Inter Milan’s books, but according to the Italian publication Gazzetta della Sport, the fact that he has been working in Denmark, instead of Italy, in a rehabilitation program with a specialist is an indication that he will not return to Serie A.

Rules in Italy state that people with a defibrillator like the one Eriksen has cannot play contact sports. But the 29-year-old could theoretically continue his career in another country, with different rules.

Ajax defender Daley Blind, for example, also received an ICD after being diagnosed with heart muscle inflammation, but has continued to play for the Eredivisie champions, as well as internationally for the Netherlands.

Inter and Eriksen are said to have a good relationship and the Italian club is determined to find the best solution for both parties. Gazzetta says Eriksen’s former club Ajax or Danish Odense could offer the playmaker a contract.

Friday’s report adds that Eriksen has been closely monitored and tested in the next five months since his cardiac arrest, as the results have not provided any alarming news.

He adds that if things continue on such a positive trajectory, Eriksen may increase his workload in 2022 with the goal of returning to soccer next year.

Eriksen collapsed in the first half of Denmark’s Euro 2020 match against Finland in June and received life-saving treatment on the field of the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.

The Denmark players surrounded Eriksen so that he could not be seen as he was resurrected on the field.

Captain Simon Kjaer, who comforted Eriksen’s partner Sabrina, and English referee Anthony Taylor were praised for their quick and empathetic response to the tragic events.

The match was postponed shortly after 6 p.m. that night and Eriksen was seen sitting upright as he was carried on a stretcher with an oxygen mask in his mouth a few minutes later.

He was admitted to hospital before the Danish FA confirmed he was awake and conscious, while his agent Michael Schoots revealed later that night that he was able to talk and talk while receiving more checks.

The Denmark players then decided to finish off the match after hearing the news of Eriksen’s recovery.

They lost 1-0 to Finland, but ended up reaching the semi-finals of the tournament before being defeated by England at Wembley.

Eriksen was released from the hospital after six days of treatment, which included placement of an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator).

Eriksen was part of the Inter Milan team that won the Serie A championship last season.

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

The Danish midfielder has played 60 times for Inter Milan since joining the club from Tottenham Hotspur 18 months ago. The 29-year-old helped the Italian team win their first Serie A title in 11 years last season.

During his time playing in England, Eriksen played more than 300 times for Spurs in a six-and-a-half-year period in North London.

Footballers with defibrillators

Anthony van Loo, Roeselare: The Belgian defender was allowed to continue his career after being fitted with a defibrillator. He returned his heart to a normal rhythm after suffering a cardiac arrhythmia during a match. He retired in 2018, at age 30, as he felt he could not return to his old performance levels.

Fabrice Muamba, Bolton: The heart of former Arsenal midfielder Muamba stood still for 78 minutes but finally recovered.

He retired five months later without ever having returned to football. However, he played 15 minutes in Ian Goodison’s testimonial match.

Daniel Engelbrecht, Stuttgarter Kickers: The striker collapsed on the pitch against Erfurt but returned to professional play at age 24 after 17 months, against the advice of numerous doctors.

He scored against Wehen Wiesbaden, becoming the first footballer to score with a defibrillator. However, he retired in 2018 to become a coach when he discovered that the device had brought him back to life three times.

Daley Blind, Ajax and Holland: Blind had a pacemaker fitted after complaining of dizziness in a Champions League game against Valencia in December 2019.

He subsequently collapsed in a friendly against Hertha Berlin in August 2020, but has generally enjoyed a safe return to top-level football.

Christian Eriksen, Inter Milan and Denmark: Eriksen collapsed on the field of Euro 2020 earlier this summer. Although he has recovered, the strict rules of Serie A mean he cannot play in Italy and current club Inter Milan must sell him.

You can choose to continue your career elsewhere or retire.
