Inter Milan have ruled that Christian Eriksen, who was fitted with a defibrillator after he suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark against Finland at Euro 2020, will not be allowed to play this season.
Inter said Eriksen was in “excellent physical and mental shape” during a visit to the club’s training ground in August but that it was too risky to play the 29-year old midfielder.
“The player has been temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sporting activity in the current season,” a statement said.
“Although the current conditions of the player don’t meet the requirements of achieving sporting fitness in Italy, the same could instead be achieved in other countries where the player could resume competitive activity.”
It is unclear, however, whether other countries would allow Eriksen to participate in their respective leagues with the ICD device fitted.
