Inter Milan terminate Eriksen’s contract by mutual consent

By  | 

Serie A champions Inter Milan have agreed to terminate the contract of Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen, six months after a heart incident that left him unable to play competitive football in Italy.

The 29-year-old suffered cardiac arrest whilst representing his country at last summer’s European Championship finals.

He was subsequently fitted with a defibrillator and prevented from competing again in Serie A despite being tied to a deal at San Siro through to 2024.

“Inter can confirm an agreement has been reached to terminate Christian Eriksen’s contract by mutual consent. The club and the entire Nerazzurri family wish Christian all the very best for his future.

“Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken. The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro – all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history,” the club said in a statement on its official website.

Eriksen joined Inter in January 2020 from Tottenham and his contract was due to expire in 2024. The midfielder played 60 matches for Inter, helping the club win Serie A last season, and scored eight goals.

The Danish midfielder recently resumed training in Denmark at Odense Boldklub, his boyhood club.
