Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen may not be permitted to return to action in Serie A due to health and safety regulations in Italy.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Dane’s eligibility to compete in Italian football will be contingent on whether the ICD he has been recommended by doctors is temporary or permanent.

After the determination that the player suffered a cardiac arrhythmia during Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener against Finland on Saturday, further tests led medical staff to recommend an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrilator.

The device is meant to prevent future cardiac problems similar to the one experienced in Saturday’s match.

Such devices are not permitted for players in Italian football, as they are thought to be a potential risk for further serious health complications.

As such, there is no question that should the device by required permanently for the 29-year-old, he cannot make his playing return for the Nerazzurri.

There are some situations with players using similar devices in other leagues, most prominently Ajax and Netherlands defender Daley Blind, but Italian regulations outlaw them.

Eriksen will be assessed again in 3-4 weeks as to whether the device will be permanent, or whether he will be able to have it removed, although this will only determine whether he would be legally eligible to return to Serie A, and not whether it would be safe to do so.
