Christian Eriksen: Inter Milan will have to part with star players – association member comments
The reigning Italian champions are reportedly forced to kick the 29-year-old out of the door. Shortly after Eriksen’s cardiac arrest, there was speculation about whether he could continue to play with an implanted defibrillator in view of the strict statutes in Italy. Now Fabrizio Braconaro, member of the scientific commission at the Italian association FIGC, provided bitter certainty in the case of the Danish midfielder.
As Braconaro said in a radio interview on Thursday, it was not possible to give a professional with a shock generator a game license. Eriksen already had a subcutaneous defibrillator implanted during an operation. This recognizes cardiac arrhythmias and can counter-shock in an emergency. He was discharged six days after being admitted to the hospital and has been on the mend since then, but made no further statements.
Christian Eriksen: Inter Milan loses midfielder – career continuation uncertain
For Inter Milan* Eriksen would be a sporting loss, even if he rarely played through in the championship season and was not one of the top performers. Since his move from the Premier League, however, he has not been able to build on his strong performances from England. In 60 competitive games for the Nerazzurri, he only met eight times and prepared three goals.
The contract of the former Tottenham professional could now become a problem, he is still tied to the Milanese until summer 2024. Eriksen himself has not yet commented on his future, and a continuation of the career is still uncertain. In Italy, the 109-time national player of the EM semi-finalist will apparently no longer be allowed to play. (ajr) * tz.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
