Christian Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots has admitted the former Tottenham midfielder has not given up his dream of continuing his professional career.
Eriksen has not played since suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 clash against Finland in June. The Dane was taken to hospital following the incident and had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device fitted on his heart.
Inter Milan revealed in October that the former Spurs man cannot continue playing in the Serie A as he does not meet the requirements of sporting fitness stipulated by the Italian medical authorities.
The Nerazzurri confirmed this week that they had reached an agreement with the 29-year-old to terminate his contract.
The midfielder, who spent six and a half years at Spurs after joining from Ajax in 2013, is now said to be training on his own at Danish club Odense Boldklub, for whom he played as a youngster.
Schoots has now spoken about Eriksen’s contract being terminated at Inter and his client’s ambitions to continue playing football.
Eriksen’s agent told The Daily Mail: “Things look good. And he is feeling good. All physical results are positive. Christian has his dreams.
“Christian is doing really well. He has been training himself for months and things are going very well.
“It was clear that we would work towards this solution for a long time. Italy is simply the only country whereas a rule you can’t play with an ICD.
“It’s a pity especially since Chris is so immensely loved by the fans. But on the other hand, it’s also positive because Chris now can look at the future with another perspective.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Given the fantastic service that Eriksen gave to Spurs, some Tottenham fans might feel that the club should re-sign the 29-year-old if he is assessed to be fit to resume his career.
However, I doubt if Spurs or any of the other top clubs in Europe would be willing to take the risk of employing the midfielder after he had an ICD fitted, even if the rules allow him to play.
