Hope of returning: Eriksen ‘to undergo medical test next month’

Christian Eriksen will reportedly undergo a medical examination next month in the hope of returning to training.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport,  Eriksen will have a crucial check-up to determine whether he can potentially play in the future, just three months after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch during Denmark’s Euro 2020 clash with Finland.

Eriksen was fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) following the incident.

And the Italian FA said in July that the Dane would need it to be removed in order to play for Inter again.

Eriksen is now set for an important check-up in October which could allow him to remove the ICD.

But the tests may also see the Dane needing to keep the device permanently.

Denmark and Inter doctors are said to be in constant touch over the matter.

And Eriksen could be allowed to start individual training before the results are in.

So far, the 29-year-old cannot be included in Simone Inzaghi’s plans for this term, and was left out of Inter’s Champions League squad.

Eriksen also thanked Denmark’s medical team last month, as well as international captain Simon Kjaer and teammates, for ‘saving my life’.

He said: “I would like to thank Morten [Skjoldager], Morten [Boesen] and the medical team who helped that day. You did a fantastic job and saved my life.

“Also a big thanks to my friend and captain Simon and my team-mates in for your support, both on June 12 and afterwards.

“And thanks to all the fans who have sent messages to me and my family. It means a lot and has given us strength and support. Thank you.”
