Eriksen reunites with his Inter teammates as he begins the road to recovery

The midfielder collapsed in his country’s tournament opener against Finland on June 12 in Copenhagen and received life-saving treatment on the pitch.

He has now returned to Italy and visited his teammates at the training center of Italian champions Suning.

“The Danish midfielder has met the club managers, the coach, the teammates and all the staff present. Eriksen is doing well and is in excellent physical and mental shape,” said a note on the club’s website.

“He will now follow the recovery program offered by Danish doctors in Copenhagen, who will also coordinate clinical follow-up.

“Inter’s medical staff will naturally be kept informed and informed throughout the process.”

Reuters understands that no further medical examinations are scheduled in Milan for Eriksen at this time.

The 29-year-old had an implantable heart defibrillator (ICD) after his collapse, a type of pacemaker that can prevent fatal cardiac arrests by triggering a shake to restore a regular heartbeat.

The future of his playing career remains uncertain, however, as he will not be allowed to play in Italy unless the device is withdrawn.

“Eriksen cannot be given the green light to play in Italy,” Francesco Braconaro, member of the Italian Football Federation’s technical scientific committee, told Radio Kiss Kiss in July.

“If the defibrillator is removed from the player, thus confirming that the condition can be resolved, he can then return to play for Inter.”

Eriksen joined Inter from Tottenham Hotspur in January 2020 and scored eight goals in 60 games for the club, playing a key role in their first Serie A triumph in 11 years last season.
