Inter Milan has terminated Christian Eriksen’s contract by mutual consent.
Six months after the midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest in horrific scenes at Euro 20202, the Italian champions have confirmed his departure from the club in an official statement.
The 29-year-old Eriksen is prohibited from playing in Italy with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator due to local health regulations. But he could continue his career in another country where the rules are different.
“The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future,” Inter said in a statement. “Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken. The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro — all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history.”
Eriksen has not played since falling face-first onto the field during Denmark’s opening match at the European Championship against Finland on June 12. His teammates formed a protective wall around him as medical workers resuscitated him with a defibrillator.
