Labyrinthine Covid Reminder System Is The Real Reason For The Delays


Christian Eriksen has started training at his youth club’s training ground in Denmark after his rehabilitation after suffering cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, a club spokesperson said on Thursday.

The Internazionale midfielder, 29, has not played since suffering cardiac arrest while running near the left sideline in Denmark’s tournament opener against the Finland in June and received life-saving treatment in the field.

“Eriksen contacted us and he is now training on his own,” said a spokesperson for Odense Boldklub (OB). “It’s natural for him since he played here in his youth and he lives around the corner. We are very happy to be able to provide him with training facilities.

Eriksen played for OB before joining Ajax in 2008, where he went international. He moved to Tottenham in 2013, playing the 2019 Champions League final, then signed for Inter last year.

The Italian medical authority has suspended Eriksen from playing in Serie A, due to a rule prohibiting the use of a cardioverting defibrillator (DCI) he had implanted, Inter said in October.

The Serie A champions have also said they are ready to let the Danish midfielder leave the club.

The OB spokesperson wasn’t sure when Eriksen first started training in Odense or how long he planned to train there.
