In an interview with Italian radio on Thursday, Francesco Braconaro, member of the scientific committee of the Italian Football Federation, confirmed that Christian Eriksen is not, for the time being, authorized to play again. The doctor opens the door to a return, provided the Dane can remove his cardiac defibrillator.
Will Christian Eriksen ever play top football again? The question inevitably arises as the midfielder suffered a heart attack last June, during Denmark’s first Euro 2021 meeting against Finland. Under contract with Inter Milan, the 29-year-old was implanted a few days later with an automatic cardiac defibrillator.
Remove the defibrillator to be able to replay
Member of the Scientific Committee of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), Francesco Braconaro spoke about Christian Eriksen and his future on the pitch. “For the moment, Christian Eriksen could not be eligible to play, indicated the doctor on the waves of the radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. If his defibrillator is removed because the pathology can be cured, he will be able to return to Inter . “
As it stands, Christian Eriksen should not therefore have the green light to replay. He should undergo additional examinations over the next few weeks to find out if he can abandon his defibrillator. If Eriksen reappeared publicly during the Euro, his comeback on the lawns could wait. Even never happen, depending on the results of medical examinations.
Without Christian Eriksen, Denmark failed at the gates of the final of Euro 2021, beaten at the end of extra time against England, in the semi-final. Inter Milan, the last Italian champions, have already found a replacement to face any eventuality. Turkish international Hakan Calhanoglu has already signed with the Lombard club, coming from rival AC Milan, arriving free.
