Jubilation As Denmark Midfielder Christian Eriksen Discharged From Hospital 6 Days After Collapsing
Christian Eriksen, the Inter Milan midfielder was reported to have been discharged from the hospital after a successful operation to fit a defibrillator implant.
The former Tottenham Hotspur star got a lot of people scared after collapsing on the pitch during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opening game against Finland on Saturday, June 12
Simon Kjær started the process of reviving the player after performing CPR on him before the medics arrived and after responding to treatment, he was rushed to the hospital.
He is now said to be back home but with a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted in him as reported by Sky Sports and BBC Sport.
Meanwhile, a statement from the Danish FA confirms that the midfielder has been allowed to rejoin his family at home after a successful surgery.
“Christian Eriksen has been through a successful operation and was today discharged from Rigshospitalet.
“Today he also visited the national team in Helsinger and from there he will go home and spend time with his family.”
Eriksen was equally quoted by the publication reacting to the immense love he received from across the globe, saying:
“Thank you for the massive number of greetings, it has been incredible to see and feel. The operation went well and I am doing well under the circumstances. It was great to see the guys again after the fantastic game they played last night.
“No need to say that I will be cheering them on Monday against Russia.”
The 29-year-old midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest during their opening game against Finland on June 12, hence, he has been ruled out for the remainder of the competition.
There are also insinuations that the former Tottenham Hotspur star will not be able to play football professionally after narrowly escaping death, thanks to his captain Simon Kjær who performed a CPR procedure on him immediately after the player collapsed.
