One of the world’s most prominent cardiologists who worked with Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen at Tottenham Hotspur has admitted that the details on his cardiac arrest are still unclear, according to a report in the English media.

Speaking during an interview with The Athletic, Sanjay Sharma explained that when the pair were working together at Tottenham Hotspur, they thought they knew everything about his heart and if he had any conditions.

That is why when the player collapsed on the pitch of Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match against Finland in June, it was such a shock to even the professionals.

“We knew about his heart health, or so we thought we knew. It came out of nowhere. We don’t know what went wrong that day. If he was sick with something or if he had a virus recently. Did he have Covid- 19? Was he vaccinated? We’re not sure yet.”

Christian Eriksen was quickly tended to by his teammates, in particular AC Milan defender Simon Kjaer who stopped him from swallowing his tongue.

Sanjay Sharma went on to explain that the congested calendar with international and club fixtures is taking a heavy toll on the fitness of many players which is why cardiac arrests are seemingly more common.

“It is much faster, more dynamic and many more games are played than before. There are more competitions, more international matches, and in football it pays a heavy toll with those who are more fragile, because they are less capable.”
