Inter Milan announce they must SELL Christian Eriksen, as he is banned from playing in Italy with an implanted defibrillator, but could continue his career abroad after his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020

  • Inter Milan have announced that they will have to sell Christian Eriksen 
  • Eriksen isn’t able to play in Serie A because he has an implanted defibrillator
  • The 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at Euro 2020 


Inter Milan have revealed that they are looking to sell Christian Eriksen as he is banned from playing in Italy with an implanted defibrillator. 

Eriksen was fitted with a defibrillator after suffering a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020 in June.

Serie A rules prevent players from playing in competitive games with a defibrillator but Eriksen could continue his career in another country.

As reported by goal, a statement from Inter read: ‘With reference to the registration rights of the player Eriksen (whose book value at 30 June 2021 was €18.3 million (£15m/$21m)), it should be noted that following a serious injury occurred during the European Championships in June 2021, the same was temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sporting activity for the current season.

‘Although the current conditions of the player are not such as to allow the achievement of sporting fitness in Italy, the same could instead be achieved in other countries where therefore the player could resume competitive activity.’

During the game against Finland, Denmark players surrounded Eriksen so that he couldn’t be seen while he was resuscitated on the pitch. He was then taken to hospital.

Eriksen was released from hospital following six days of treatment, which included him being fitted with an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator).

The ICD is connected to the heart by wires and sends an electrical pulse in order to correct irregular rhythms.

If Eriksen was to leave Inter then it is possible that he could return to Tottenham, who he played for between 2013 and 2020, with Ajax, another of his former clubs, an alternative destination. 

Eriksen has made 60 appearances for Inter, scoring eight goals. He was part of the side that won the Serie A title last season.

Although Eriksen’s Inter contract runs until the summer of 2024, it appears that he may have to leave the club before then.
