The future of Christian Eriksen is currently up in the air. According to the member of the technical scientific committee of the Italian Federation, Francesto Braconaro, “we cannot fully approve him playing in Italy. If the defibrillator is removed from this player and a specialist shows that he is fine, he will be able to play for Inter. “
Eriksen received an ICD, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, but in Serie A a footballer is not allowed to play with that device. If the defibrillator is withdrawn, Eriksen would have to undergo an examination, supervised by the CONI and the Italian Federation, and if he surpasses it, he could wear the Inter elastic band again. The player is currently on vacation and, upon his return, his situation will be evaluated by Inter’s doctors.
Daley Blind, Ajax player, wears the same defibrillator as Eriksen but he is allowed to play national and European competition, as there is no law that prohibits you from actively participating with your team.
