Eriksen Returns To Milan For The First Time After Cardiac Arrest

Christian Eriksen has reportedly returned to Milan for the first time since leaving for Denmark’s training camp ahead of the Euros, at the end of last season.

The Dane suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch in Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland, on 12 July, and was thought he will never be able to play again at a professional level.

Eriksen landed in Milan on Wednesday morning and had a meeting with Beppe Marotta, Inter’s sporting director.

The midfielder will undergo further medical tests at Inter’s request.

Eriksen is forced to take a break for a few months at least, following the horrific events he was involved in last month.

The 29-year-old is expected to greet his colleagues on Thursday or Friday, then continue his recovery at home, in Denmark, awaiting the results of investigations.

Eriksen could be back playing in six to eight months, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, but only if the defibrillator implanted device does not need to be permanent.

If the implant needs to be definitive, Eriksen could play in leagues that work under different medical protocols, such as the English Premier League or the Dutch Eredivisie.
