- Inter Milan have announced that they will have to sell Christian Eriksen
- Eriksen cannot play in Serie A because he has an implanted defibrillator
- The 29-year-old suffered cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at Euro 2020
Inter Milan have revealed that they are looking to sell Christian Eriksen as he is prohibited from playing in Italy with an implanted defibrillator.
Eriksen was equipped with a defibrillator after suffering cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020 in June.
Serie A rules prevent players from playing competitive matches with a defibrillator, but Eriksen could continue his career in another country.
Inter Milan will have sold Christian Eriksen because he cannot play with an implanted defibrillator
As reported by objective, a statement from Inter said: “ With reference to the registration fees of the player Eriksen (whose book value as of June 30, 2021 was 18.3 million euros (15 million pounds / 21 million dollars)), It should be noted that after a serious injury occurred during the European Championship in June 2021, it was temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sports activity for the current season.
“Although the current conditions of the player do not allow the achievement of sporting fitness in Italy, the same could be achieved in other countries where, therefore, the player could resume competitive activity.”
Eriksen received an ICD after suffering cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at Euro 2020
During the game against Finland, the Danish players surrounded Eriksen so that he could not be seen as he was resurrected on the field. Then they took him to the hospital.
Eriksen was released from the hospital after six days of treatment, which included an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator).
The ICD is connected to the heart by wires and sends an electrical pulse to correct irregular rhythms.
The midfielder was part of Inter Milan that won the Serie A title last season.
If Eriksen left Inter then it is possible that he could return to Tottenham, for which he played between 2013 and 2020, with Ajax, another of his former clubs, an alternative destination.
Eriksen has made 60 appearances for Inter and has scored eight goals. He was part of the team that won the Serie A title last season.
Although Eriksen’s contract with Inter runs until the summer of 2024, it appears that he will have to leave the club before then.
