Christian Eriksen trains with new team in another step towards emotional return

Christian Eriksen has taken another step in his quest to return to professional football after having his contract terminated by mutual consent at Inter Milan after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The football world was stunned after watching the 29-year-old collapse during Denmark's opening group stage match against Finland in Copenhagen during Euro 2020.

The former Spurs midfielder received urgent medical assistance including cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation, and was thankfully stabilised before leaving the pitch on a stretcher.

It was announced the following day that Eriksen would be fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator device in bid to help pacing of the heartbeat going forward.

Eurosport Italy now report that Eriksen took part in some training at the Riva IV stadium in Chiasso, having been told that his career could continue in Denmark or the Netherlands.

FC Chiasso, founded in 1905, are currently in the third tier of Swiss football, and have one Danish player in defender Aris Sorensen.

Italian rules say that individuals that have a defibrillator implanted under the skin cannot take part in competitive activity, which led to the termination of his contract with Inter.

Eriksen had previously taken part in light training with Odense, and appears to be keen on getting his career back on track away from Italy almost two years after leaving Tottenham.

Having scored a free-kick on the final day of last season to land Inter Milan their first Serie A title since 2010, the club announced his departure earlier this month.

They wrote: "FC Internazionale Milano announces that an agreement has been reached for the consensual termination of Christian Eriksen’s contract.

"The club and the entire Nerazzurri family embrace the player and wish him the best for his future.

"Christian was a key figure in our march to the Scudetto – a team effort which Eriksen contributed to with his vision, intuition, passing, assists and goals, including some big ones."

Adding of his final goal for the club: "That is our final, happy, wistful memory of Christian on the pitch in an Inter shirt.

"Because sometimes life takes a turn for the unexpected and sends you down a path you didn’t imagine.

"Every Inter fan, every football fan, looked on in silence, hoping for Christian. Seeing him back [at the training ground] in Appiano Gentile with his teammates, as Italian champions, was a joy to behold and one we will never forget."
