Official: Eriksen returns to football by signing with the Premier League club

Christian Eriksen has returned to football, seven months after a heart attack on the pitch during Euro 2020, signing a deal with Premier League club Brentford.

Brentford announced early Monday that Danish midfielder Eriksen has signed a six-month deal with the club.

“Brentford FC confirms that it has signed Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen. “The 29-year-old signed the agreement after passing the medical tests”, it is said in the announcement of the English club.

He will play for Brentford until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Eriksen left Inter, breaking the agreement with bilateral agreement, after the medical authorities in Italy banned him from playing in Serie A because he has a defibrillator placed in his heart.

The 29-year-old had joined the Italian giants in 2020 from Premier League club Tottenham.

However, he has now passed medical tests and is fit to play again and will become the first professional player in England to play with a heart defibrillator.

In the past, Eriksen has said that his heart is not an obstacle for him to play football.

He even intends to play for Denmark in the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar in November.
