AC Milan and Denmark defender Simon Kjaer is grateful that Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen has recovered and is in good spirits after his health emergency during the Euros.

Kjaer was among the recipients of the 2021 UEFA President’s Award for his quick medical response when the Inter midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener against Finland, and he gave his thoughts to UEFA’s official site.

Kjaer’s quick action helped ensure that Eriksen survived in the immediate aftermath of his health emergency, and the 29-year-old went on to recover at the hospital in Copenhagen.

Eriksen is now fully on the mend and thanks to the immediate medical attention of Kjaer and others, the shocking event did not have a sadder outcome.

Kjaer is simply happy that his teammate and friend has recovered, and sees this as the most important thing for Eriksen, himself, and the midfielder’s many friends, family members, and teammates.

“It’s something that will stay with us for the rest of our lives,” he said. “The team reacted as a unit… as a team, we made the maximum effort to stick together and try to get through that situation and be as helpful as possible.”

“I try to lead the team on and off the pitch, in every aspect of life, as footballers, when we’re together,” he added. “I think it’s one of the biggest privileges I have in my career.”

“I’ve known Christian [Eriksen] for many years,” Kjær added. “[He] has a great family, he has a lot of friends, a lot of teammates that want the best for him. As long as he’s happy and his family is good, I’m happy.”
