Sharjah 24 – Azad Khalil:
Italian football club Inter Milan announced on Friday that they had terminated their contract with Danish Christian Eriksen by mutual consent following a heart attack on a Danish player during the European Championships in June.
During the Denmark-Finland match in Copenhagen, 29-year-old Eriksson suffered a heart attack and had to survive again.
Ericsson fitted the pacemaker, but such a device is banned in Italian football.
Ericsson could continue to play in another league and is currently coaching the Odense team he played on when he was young.
Inter Milan said in a statement: “Inter Milan can confirm that an agreement has been reached to terminate Christian Eriksen’s contract by mutual consent. We wish the club and his family all the best for Christine’s future.”
“Even though Inter and Christian are currently separated, the bond will never be broken. Good times, goals, victories, league celebrations with fans outside San Siro – these will always be in Inter’s history.”
After seven years with Tottenham, Eriksen joined Inter Milan in January 2020 with a contract until 2024. Eriksson has scored eight goals in 60 appearances in all competitions, helping to win the Inter Milan League title in 2021.
Inter Milan said in a separate farewell message: “Christian was a key factor in our march towards the league title, including his vision, intuition, passing, goal-making and scoring, big goals in a team effort.”
