Eriksen, 29, has not played since suffering cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opening game of Euro 2020 against Finland in June
Christian Eriksen has begun working out at the training ground of his youth club in Denmark following his rehabilitation after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, a spokesperson for the club said on Thursday.
Eriksen, 29, has not played since suffering the cardiac arrest while running near the left touchline during Denmark’s opening game of Euro 2020 against Finland in June and received life-saving treatment on the pitch.
“Eriksen reached out to us, and he is now training by himself,” a spokesperson for Odense Boldklub (OB) told Reuters.
“It’s natural for him since he played here in his youth and lives around the corner. We are very happy to be able to provide training facilities for him,” he said.
The Italian medical authority has suspended Eriksen from playing in Serie A, due to a rule prohibiting the use of a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) device that he has had implanted, Inter said in October.
The Serie A champions also said they were open to letting the Danish midfielder leave the club.
