Serie A champions Inter Milan have terminated Christian Eriksen’s contract with the club as a rule in the league prevents him from playing with a defibrillator. The Dane who signed from Tottenham cannot play for the Nerazzurri due to his health issues, as tests are likely to conclusively show that he cannot remove the heart implant that bars him from playing in Italy. Eriksen who has been training with his boyhood club Odense in Denmark suffered a scare at Euro 2020 when he collapsed with no contact due to a cardiac problem. Simon Kjaer, the medics, and his teammates put on a brave face as they watched on. Eriksen has since recovered and has been training with his boyhood club Odense and there are rumors he could return to the club permanently following his contract termination.
The 29-year-old established himself as a wunderkind at Ajax where he scored 32 goals and assisted 65 winning three league titles and the KNVB cup before moving to England. At Tottenham, he scored 69 goals and assisted another 90 before joining Inter under Antonio Conte in January 2020 for around 20 million Euros. Despite a poor start, he began to find his feet in Italy and helped them win the league for the first time in 10 years. He has scored 36 goals and assisted 25 for Denmark since his debut in 2010. Eriksen will be remembered for his vision, playmaking, and ball-striking abilities. Hopefully, he is showing those qualities out on the pitch very soon.
