Former Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen has admitted that he loved the time he spent at the club and feels it is a shame that it had to end, according to a report in the Danish broadcast media.
Speaking during an interview on Danish TV Channel Sport Tv2, via FCInter1908, the Danish footballer opened up about the cardiac arrest that he suffered during Euro 2020 that almost took his life.
That event meant that he is no longer eligible to play in Italy due to the medical device he has fitted to regulate his heartbeat. His contract with the club was recently terminated by mutual consent so he can make a return to playing football elsewhere.
Christian Eriksen explained that it was a shame that he can no longer play for Inter but he has to make the best decisions with his family in mind and his wife supports the choice to leave Inter.
“In the ambulance I thought: keep my shoes. It’s over. I don’t play football anymore. The same thing I said to my girlfriend, Sabrina: I don’t play anymore, I don’t believe it. I would like to go back to my normal everyday life.
“After all, I am a soccer player. I want to be, and I hope to be again soon. Inter? It’s a shame because I loved my time spent in that team. I have to make the best decision with my family and I have Sabrina’s support in this.”
