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.
