Christian Eriksen may not play football again in Italy following his cardiac arrest, doctor gives condition

Published on

Dr. Francesco Braconaro of the Italian Football Association has confirmed that Christian Eriksen may not be allowed to play for Inter Milan again unless the defibrillator installed on him after his cardiac arrest while on Denmark duty is removed. 

The 29-year-old Denmark midfielder collapsed during his country’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland on June 12 and required urgent CPR treatment from pitch-side medics. Eriksen was brought back to life on the pitch but the remainder of his football career remains in doubt.

It was confirmed after his cardiac arrest that Eriksen now has an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) inserted in his chest to regulate any further disturbances in his heartbeat. 

Eriksen plays club football for Inter Milan in Italy, a country that bans players from competing if they have any significant heart abnormalities.  

 Francesco Braconaro, a member of the Italian FA’s technical-scientific committee, revealed the Danish footballer must have the defibrillator removed to play in Italian football again, as it will show he has no further heart problems. 

Braconaro told Radio Kiss Kiss: ‘Christian Eriksen cannot be given the all-clear to play in Italy.

‘If the player has the defibrillator removed, therefore confirming the pathology can be resolved, then he can return to play for Inter.’
