Inter Milan have winded up midfielder Christian Eriksen’s contract following the Denmark international was suspended from playing because of having a cardiac device fitted.
He is restrained from playing in Italy with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator because of local health regulations. But he could resume his career in another nation where the rules and regulations are different.
“The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future,” Inter stated in a statement.
“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.”
Eriksen has not played since his cardiac arrest on the field during Denmark’s opening match at the European Championship facing Finland on June 12th.
His team-mates established a protective wall around him as medical workers rescued him with a defibrillator. Eriksen was in the hospital for a week, where he had a type of pacemaker fitted.
Eriksen was recruited by Inter in January 2020 from Tottenham and his agreement was due to expire in 2024. The midfielder played 60 matches for Inter, helping the club triumph Serie A last season, and scored eight goals.
Eriksen recently continued his training in Denmark at Odense Boldklub, the club where he commenced his career.
