Thank you for all the support you have received. This is the summary of Christian Eriksen’s first short reaction after the Denmark international suffered a heart attack during the European Championship match against Finland last Saturday.
Eriksen, 29, collapsed shortly before the break. The Inter midfielder and thus his Romelu Lukaku teammate was resuscitated on the field for about ten minutes. Eriksen was conscious to leave the field. He currently resides at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, where further investigations are underway.
Now, two days later, he’s making himself heard through his manager for the first time at La Gazzetta dello Sport. Thank you all, said the Danish playmaker. “I will not give up. I feel better now, but most of all I want to understand what happened. I want to thank people for everything they have done for me.”
“We spoke this morning. He was in a happy mood and he’s fine,” Martin Schutz said in the Italian sports newspaper on Monday. Christian was happy. He saw how much love he had around him, we all want to understand what happened, he wants that too. Doctors are examining him thoroughly, which takes time.”
Eriksen will remain in hospital on Monday and “maybe Tuesday as well” for observation. “Now he has to recover, his wife and parents are with him,” Scotts says. The midfielder will follow Denmark’s upcoming matches in the European Championship, next Thursday against the Red Devils, and next Monday against Russia. “Anyway, he wants to support his team against Belgium as a fan.” Schutz did not say if Eriksen would be present at Parken Stadium.
No explanation لا
Danish team doctor Morten Boesen was able to provide a little additional information about Eriksen’s heart failure at a press conference in Copenhagen on Sunday.
“We have no explanation for what happened to Christian,” Buzyn explained. We no longer know anything about her. I’ve seen the same thing as me. This is also one of the reasons why he is in the hospital now, to understand what could have happened. All the medical checks he had before the tournament were fine. He’s been away for a while. It was a heart attack. Fortunately, we got it back to us quickly with the help of a defibrillator. It is currently stable. We have been in contact with him several times.”
