Internazionale cooperates in a departure of Christian Eriksen. The Dane, who suffered a cardiac arrest during the opening match of Denmark during the European Championship, is not allowed to play in Serie A with a defibrillator according to the rules of the Italian Football Association.
The Italian champion has therefore announced that he is open to a departure of the midfielder to another competition. “The player’s current situation does not meet the requirements set in Italy for the practice of sport,” the club wrote in publishing its annual figures. “But in other countries the player could play competitively.”
Playing with a defibrillator is allowed in the Netherlands. For example, Ajax player Daley Blind plays with a box in his chest, which can absorb heart rhythm disturbances during the match.
Eriksen was released from the bench at Tottenham Hotspur by Inter in January 2020. In his second season, he immediately helped his Italian employer to the first scudetto since 2010.
The Dane was especially important in the final phase of the competition. He helped Inter to a point in the top match against Napoli and on the final day made the 2-0 in the championship game against Udinese.
A few weeks later, he started as the big eye-catcher of the Danes at the European Championship, but disaster struck in the duel with Finland. Eriksen collapsed for no apparent reason in front of a sold out stadium in Copenhagen and millions of television viewers.
Shielded by a circle of teammates, he was resuscitated on the field and later fitted with a defibrillator in hospital.
