Inter Milan’s Christian Eriksen has returned to training with one of his former clubs, six months after suffering cardiac arrest at the EURO 2020 tournament.
He collapsed on the pitch during Denmark’s game against Finland at Euro 2020 in June and subsequently needed life-saving treatment.
As a result, the Danish midfielder was suspended from playing for Inter in the Serie A by the Italian medical authorities due to the life-saving device fitted into his heart which is unallowed in the league.
The playmaker is targeting a sensational return to the game in 2022, and has stepped up his rehabilitation by training with his former side, Odense Boldklub.
A spokesperson for the club told Reuters: “Eriksen reached out to us, and he is now training by himself.
“It’s natural for him since he played here in his youth and lives around the corner. We are very happy to be able to provide training facilities for him.”
Eriksen was a Odense Boldklub player between 2005 and 2008, prior to joining Dutch giants Ajax.
Inter are believed to be willing to sell or release Eriksen from his contract in January in order for him to be able continue his career elsewhere.
