Christian Eriksen’s Inter career could be over due to medical complications after his heart attack suffered during Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener against Finland.

Italian media outlet Sky Sport Italia report that if the ICD (implanted cardioverter defibrulator) that the Dane had implanted yesterday is determined to be necessary on a permanent basis, he will be unable to continue playing in Italy.

This is because of regulations which prohibit the wearing of such a device for reasons of player safety.

While some players in other leagues use an ICD, including Dutch international Blind at Manchester United and Ajax, the devices are not allowed by athletes in contact sports by COCIS (Cardiological Organizing Committee for Sports Fitness) in Italy.

The Dane is set to be discharged today, and will undergo further examinations in the coming weeks to determine whether the device is to be temporary or permanent.

For the moment the player’s recovery is the priority and so no clear answers on his future are expected immediately.
