Christian Eriksen might not play professional football again, warns cardiologist

Danish international Christian Eriksen may not play professional football again, warns a leading sports cardiologist.

The former Spurs’ mid-field player collapsed during a Euro 2020 game against Finland.

He was treated on the pitch before being taken to hospital.


Professor Sanjay Sharma, of London’s St George’s University, said football authorities would be “very strict” about letting him play again.

Professor Sharma – who worked with Eriksen at Spurs – added:

“Clearly something went terribly wrong.

“But they managed to get him back.

“The question is what happened?

“And why did it happen?

“This guy had normal tests all the way up to 2019 so how do you explain this cardiac arrest?”

The Professor said reports Eriksen was awake in hospital was “a very good sign”.

He added: “I’m very pleased.

“The fact he’s stable and awake, his outlook is going to be very good.

“I don’t know whether he’ll ever play football again.

“Without putting it too bluntly, he died today, albeit for a few minutes, but he did die, and would the medical professional allow him to die again?

“The answer is no.”
