Since the Danish football star’s collapse due to a suspected cardiac arrest during the European Championship match against Finland on June 12, Eriksen has stayed out of the spotlight and been given space by his club, Inter Milan, to recover in peace.
Italian media have reported widely on what his future may hold which remains just as uncertain as playing at Crikeyslots.
In addition to a reunion with his teammates, Christian Eriksen is expected to have new thorough initial heart examinations. This was Inter’s doctors and Eriksen himself can become wiser about what caused his medical emergency in the middle of the European Championships.
A Crucial Step
This is the crucial decision for the next step in relation to Christian Eriksen’s future, who at Rigshospitalet had a so-called ICD device implanted in his chest, i.e. a kind of pacemaker.
Among other things, it is important – if at all possible – to determine whether it was virus that was the cause, or whether it was a heart defect.
Regardless of the outcome, the upcoming examinations are similar to those Eriksen received at the danish Rigshospitalet in June.
Also, it is unknown whether the 29-year-old midfield star even wants to continue his career after the ugly incident.
Difficult To Get Green Light To Play From Italian Olympic Committee
In any case, it may be difficult to get the green light to continue playing in Serie A for Inter, the technical scientific committee of the Italian Olympic Committee which governs the Serie A, if he is to keep the ICD unit.
The protocol from 2017, which doctors in Italy use to assess whether sports can be authorized for heart disease, states that athletes can not receive the clearance if an ICD device has been implanted, in the case of a sport at risk of trauma.
Possibility To Play At Former Club In The Netherlands
Italian media have reported that if Eriksen wants to continue his career, but can’t get cleared to play at Inter, then Holland, where he has previously played, may be an opportunity.
And if, for example, should Christian Eriksen wants to conclude his career, then there is a possibility that Inter can be compensated for the value their Danish star via insurance.
But it is to hard to anticipate the course of events yet. It can actually take up to 6-8 months before they have the full picture of Eriksen’s condition, and a a final decision made.
