Ericsson may no longer be allowed to play for Inter Milan
Danish soccer star Christian Eriksen is clearly facing difficulties at his Italian club Inter Milan, after using an ICD defibrillator. It is forbidden in Italy to play top-class games with ICD devices., said Lucio Mos, president of the Italian Sports Cardiologists Association in “Radio Punto Nuovo” and thus confirmed the same report by “Gazetta dello Sport”. “Protocols in Italy are very strict. So I find it unlikely that we will see Ericsson again in the Italian competition.”
The 29-year-old Danish playwright suffered a cardiac arrest during the European Championship game against Finland on Saturday and had to revive. On Thursday the Danish Association announced that That as a medical consequence, an ICD defibrillator will be implanted in it. This device is similar to a pacemaker and is used by people at increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias. According to “Gazetta dello Sport” and “Corrire dello Sport” Ericsson has already had an operation and should be allowed to leave the hospital today or tomorrow at the latest. The Danish Association did not wish to comment on these reports.
However, it is too early to predict when Ericsson might be able to play competitive sport again and how long he will have to wear the defibrillator in his body. A media round by the Danish association with coach Kasper Hjulmund and press spokesman Jakob Hoyer also on Friday had no confirmation for a report by “Gazetta dello Sport”, according to which Ericsson already had an operation. “We have no news. If there is news, we will announce it on Twitter,” Hoyer said.
Huzulmand also emphasized on Friday: “We have good contact with Christian. And we are very happy that he is still doing well. But Christian is going through tough weeks and we don’t yet know what to expect. All we can say is that we are there for him.” (DPA/TSP)
