Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen is set to get the results back on the tests which should conclusively show that he is unable to play for the Nerazzurri again.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 29-year-old is almost certain to be ruled not eligible to continue playing in Italy.
Eriksen has had his condition regularly observed since suffering a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland, and his situation does not look to have changed significantly in some time.
The midfielder will undergo another round of cardiological tests in Denmark, with the agreement of the Nerazzurri’s medical team, which should determine once and for all whether he can remove his Implantable Cardioverter Defibrulator.
The implant is key to the player’s situation with Inter, as its use is not permitted by a footballer under Italian health and safety regulations.
The tests are expected to reveal conclusively that the ICD cannot be removed safely, and once this is the case then it will be confirmed that the Dane can no longer play for Inter.
