According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Christian Eriksen told his Inter teammates that he ‘had been lucky’, adding he will return to action in ‘four or five months.’

The Dane met his Inter teammates at Appiano Gentile yesterday. It was the first time since his incident during Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener on June 12.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Eriksen fought back tears when he saw his teammates and told them he “had been lucky.”

He also added that he will return to action “in four or five months.”

Eriksen suffered a heart attack during Denmark’s UEFA Euro 2020 opener against Finland on June 12.

Doctors saved his life on the pitch before taking him to the hospital. The 29-year-old underwent surgery to implant a heart defibrillator a few days later, but he won’t be allowed to play in Serie A again unless the device is removed.

“He will now follow the recovery programme put forward by Danish doctors in Copenhagen, who will also co-ordinate the clinical follow-up,” Inter said in an official statement yesterday.

“The Inter medical staff will naturally be kept informed and up to date throughout the process.”

The 29-year-old will now return to Denmark for a short holiday.
