The Serie A club, Inter Milan have announced the termination of the contract with the Danish player, Christian Eriksen. The contract was ended mutually. The 29-year-old has not played since his collapse during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opening game against Finland on June 12, earlier this year. His teammates shaped a protective wall around him while medical personnel used a defibrillator to resuscitate him. Eriksen was hospitalised for a week and had a pacemaker implanted.
Due to local health guidelines, Eriksen is not permitted to play in Italy, while wearing an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. He could, however, continue his career in a different country where the rules are different.
The defending Serie A champions posted a heartfelt letter on their website in which they thanked the talented 29-year-old Danish midfielder for his involvement in the club’s recent success.
The Inter’s letter to Eriksen reads, “Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken. The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro – all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history.”
Inter said in a statement, “The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future.”
Christian joined Milan on a four-and-a-half-year contract from Tottenham Hotspur in January 2020. He played 60 games for the club last season and helped the club win Serie A.
There has been no word on whether or not Eriksen will resume his professional career. Although he recently returned to training at Odense Boldklub, where he began his career.
