After 173 days of cardiac arrest, Christian Eriksen is back on the pitch to train. The Inter-owned midfielder, victim of a heart problem last June during Denmark-Finland at Euro 2020, asked and obtained to be able to train alone in the sports center of Odense, a Danish team where the 29-year-old played at the beginning of his career . “Eriksen has contacted us and is now training alone,” said a spokesperson for Odense. “It’s natural for him since he played here as a young man and lives around the corner. We are very happy to be able to provide training facilities for him, ”added the spokesman for the Danish club. A first taste of football for Eriksen, waiting for news about the future: last June he was implanted with a subcutaneous heart defibrillator, which forbids him to take the field in official matches in Italy.
If Eriksen resumes training, AC Milan player Simon Kjær will stop. The 32-year-old Danish defender will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair the damage to the ligament. Milan does not give certain recovery times and does not go into detail about the injury but it could be a long stop. A very heavy absence for the Rossoneri team that will have to do without one of its leaders, a player who is an example of personality on and off the pitch. Just a few days ago, Kjaer was applauded and praised by the best players from around the world on the evening of the Golden Ball. A tribute for having personally contributed to avoiding the drama to the Europeans: “The promptness of spirit, the reactivity and the competence shown while Christian Eriksen was losing consciousness, deserve an eternal tribute”. But just on the day when the Inter midfielder returns to training in the Odense, Kjaer is forced to stop, to undergo surgery and – probably – to stay away from the pitch for a long time.
