Current Serie A champions, Inter Milan have announced that 29-year-old Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen will not be able to play for the club this season.
Following a serious injury that occurred during the European Championship in June 2021, Eriksen has been temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sporting activity in the current season.
According to Francesco Braconaro, who is a member of the Italian Football Federation, Eriksen will not be allowed to play in Italy unless the ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator fitted, a small battery-powered pacemaker that detects and stops abnormal heartbeats and can prevent fatal cardiac arrests by jolting the heart to restore a regular rhythm.) device is removed from his chest.
In a statement, the club said: “Following a serious injury which occurred during the European Championship in June 2021, the player has been temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sporting activity in the current season.
The club has also said they are open to allowing Eriksen to play outside the club this season.
“Although the current conditions of the players contest the requirements of achieving sporting fitness in Italy, the same could instead be achieved in other countries where the player could resume competitive activity.” The club stated.
It can be recalled that Eriksen collapsed while playing against Finland in the Euros championship on June 12th, 2021.
The Danish player joined Inter Milan from Tottenham in January 2020 scoring eight goals with over 20 appearances for the club.
