Serie A: Christian Eriksen’s contract to be mutually terminated
The Danish international is set to have his contract at Italian champions Inter terminated as he is banned from playing in Serie A unless defibrillator is removed.
The Denmark midfielder has not played since he collapsed during his country’s Euro 2020 match against Finland in June, although it was recently revealed that he had started training again on his own, at a facility arranged by his local club in Denmark.
Eriksen is still on the books at Inter Milan but according to Italian publication Gazzetta della Sport, the contract could be terminated soon as a result of the cardiac arrest.
The Italian Football Federation announced that he could play again if his fitness and health allowed, but he could not play if he was reliant on his newly-fitted ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) and this has left both him and the club little choice but to mutually terminate his contract and, although the official announcement is yet to come, it is expected soon.
‘We are really happy that Christian Eriksen is keeping in shape right now on our courts,’ Odense’s sports director, Michael Hemmingsen, told BT.
‘We have kept in touch with Christian since he left Odense, and therefore we are happy that he asked us if he could retrain in Adalen.’
BT’s report details that Eriksen was on one of the training pitches at 8am and was kicking the ball in some of the drills.
It is reported that he is focused on cardio work but is also incorporating a ball into some parts of his workouts.
The Danish midfielder has played 60 times for Inter since joining the club from Tottenham 18 months ago. He helped the Italian side win their first Serie A title in 11 years last season.
