Eriksen is back on the court after recovering from a heart attack

Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen has started training with his former club in Denmark, after the end of his rehabilitation program after suffering a heart attack during the European Football Championship, a spokesman for Odense said on Thursday.

Eriksen, 29, has not played since he fell on the field in Denmark’s opening match in a 1-0 loss to Finland on June 12.

But he recovered after saving his life on the field with the help of his colleagues and medical staff before being taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated with a pacemaker implantation.

“Eriksen contacted us and started training on his own,” the spokesman told Reuters.

“It’s normal, he played at Odense in the youth categories, and he lives near the club. We are happy to provide a place for Eriksen’s training.”

Eriksen returns to his old club

Eriksen played for Odense before joining Ajax Amsterdam in 2008, when he also became an international player. He moved to Tottenham in 2013 and participated in the 2019 Champions League final, after which he signed with Inter Milan last year.

In August, Francesco Bracconaro, a member of the Italian Football Federation’s technical and scientific committee, said he would not allow Eriksen to play in Italy until the pacemaker was removed.

Inter Milan said in October, “With regard to the registration rights of the player Eriksen, it should be noted that in the wake of the serious injury he suffered in the European Championship in June 2021, the Italian medical authorities imposed a ban on the player from practicing sports activities in the current season.”

The statement added, “Although the player does not meet the fitness requirements required to practice sports activity in Italy, he may be able to achieve this in other countries where he can practice competitive activities.”
