Last summer, Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opening match at the European Championship. In Italy it is forbidden to play with a defibrillator and as a result he was unable to continue his career at Inter. In mid-December, Eriksen’s contract in Milan was dissolved by mutual agreement, after which he signed a contract with Brentford this winter. He could make his comeback as a professional footballer for the London club on Saturday.
