Christian Eriksen might not be allowed to play in Serie A again unless he has his heart-starting device removed.
This is according to the chief Italian medic, who says there is a huge risk if the 29-year old is allowed back onto the football pitch again.
Despite making a remarkable recovery, Eriksen is currently not eligible to play in the Serie A.img data-src="https://netstorage-tuko.akamaized.net/images/297e76579939110b.jpg?impolicy=cropped-image&imwidth=256" sizes="256px" data-srcset="https://netstorage-tuko.akamaized.net/images/297e76579939110b.jpg?impolicy=cropped-image&imwidth=256, https://netstorage-tuko.akamaized.net/images/297e76579939110b.jpg?impolicy=cropped-image&imwidth=512"">

This would entail being free from the ICD device, which is primarily meant to control a condition known as arrhythmia.
Arrhythmia is a condition where the heartbeat pattern is not regular as the heart can end up beating too slowly or too fast, causing sudden death.
What was said by Italian officials
Italian FA’s technical-scientific committee Francesco Braconaro was quoted on radio saying this about Eriksen’s condition:
“Christian Eriksen cannot be given the all-clear to play in Italy. If the player has the defibrillator removed, therefore confirming the pathology can be resolved, then he can return to play for Inter.”

Active players with ICD device
Former Manchester United defensive midfielder Daley Blind is a classic example of how a player can cope with his football career with the device still on hand.
Blind also has a heart condition and was fitted with the device, and he currently plays in the Dutch Eredevisie for Ajax.
