Cristian Eriksen is fine, his recovery is going smoothly, the defibrillator that was implanted in his heart to avoid events such as the heart attack he suffered on the pitch, during the last European Championship, does not present news and little by little the Dane has resumed his normal life. Up to now.
This Thursday, a qualification that Serie A would have for its return to competition with Inter Milan, a team with which it has a contract until 2022, was made official.
Francesco Braconaro, member of the technical scientific committee of the Italian Federation, explained the situation in dialogue with Radio KissKiss: “We cannot fully approve him to play in Italy. If this player has the defibrillator removed and a specialist shows that he is fine, he will be able to play at Inter, “he warned.
The expert refers to a regulation of the Italian championship that does not allow playing with devices of this type, since the health system indicates that an elbow or a collision with another player could cause the device to break and that would generate an imminent risk for the athlete’s life.
Pro now it has not been confirmed that Eriksen must use the defibrillator permanently, so there would be an option in the Series A. But if he needed it from now on, this Italian standard is not common to all of Europe, so other leagues could open their doors for the comeback.
This is the case, for example, with Daley Blind, the Danish’s former teammate at Ajax, who currently plays for that team and also internationally with the Netherlands team.
