Victim of a heart attack on Saturday during Denmark-Finland, Christian Eriksen could be forced to end his career, at 29 years old.
This is not the first question we asked ourselves when we saw the images. The main thing is that Christian Eriksen has come back to life, Saturday, after his heart failure. The Dane left the lawn on a stretcher, hidden behind a sheet, escorted by his teammates. Will we see him again on a football field? It is very far from being acquired.
“I don’t know if he will ever play football again, Dr Sanjay, professor of sports cardiology at a London university, told Reuters. It might sound rude, but Eriksen died for a few minutes. Will health professionals take the risk of letting him die again? The answer is no. The good news is he’s going to live, the bad is he’s probably come to the end of his career. In the UK he wouldn’t be allowed to play anyway, we’re very strict about that. “
Eriksen deprived of top football?
Now in India, Dr Sharma is well placed to discuss the case ofEriksen, since he personally took care of the player when he was playing for Tottenham (2013-2020). ” I thought : ‘Oh my God ? Is there something we haven’t seen? ‘ But I looked at all the test results and everything looked perfect ”, he explains.
A heart defect can always escape the eye of doctors, even the best on the planet. That’s why no risk will be taken with Eriksen. “It’s probably the end of his career, thus believes Dr. Murray, contacted by the Daily Mail. In addition, the Italians (Eriksen plays at Inter Milan, editor’s note) will prevent him from resuming sports practice if a cardiac anomaly is discovered, it is the law. “
Everything will therefore depend on the next tests passed by the Danish playmaker. “Subsequent examinations will make it possible to verify that there are no neurological sequelae and that the lack of oxygenation of the brain was not detrimental, summarizes with L’Equipe Laurent Chevalier, co-president of the sports cardiologists club. He may be unable to return to professional football and may no longer be able to be a top athlete. He may have more modest consequences in his everyday life, but no longer be able to withstand the demands and intensity of the high level. What is essential is that his life be saved. “
