Italy’s Rules Around Players Fitness & Defibrillators Will Soon Be Reviewed, Italian Media Report

The rules in Italy surrounding defibrillators and whether players can play whilst reliant on them are set to be reviewed, according to a report in the Italian print media.

As has been reported by Corriere dello Sport, a more gradual and thoughtful approach will be taken by the authorities when it comes to deciding if individuals can play in Italy or not.

The debate was brought more firmly into the public eye when then-Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch when playing for Denmark during Euro 2020 in Copenhagen.

He has since recovered and has been fitted with a subcutaneous cardiac defibrillator and had to terminate his contract with Inter so that he could rebuild his playing career elsewhere.

The rules could be changed so that a player’s eligibility will be based on much more than if they have a defibrillator fitted or not. The type of heart issue they suffered will be taken into account more readily.
