CARDIOLOGIST WARNINGA sports cardiologist who previously worked with Eriksen at Tottenham said the midfielder, now at Inter Milan, was unlikely to play again."Clearly something went terribly wrong," Sanjay Sharma, professor of sports cardiology at St George's, University of London, told the Press Association agency.

"But they managed to get him back. The question is what happened? And why did it happen?"This guy had normal tests all the way up to 2019 so how do you explain this cardiac arrest?"Sharma, who chairs the Football Association's expert cardiac consensus group, said there were multiple reasons a cardiac arrest could have happened, such as high temperatures or an unidentified condition. headtopics.com

I don't know whether he'll ever play football again.

"Without putting it too bluntly, he died today, albeit for a few minutes, but he did die and would the medical professional allow him to die again? The answer is no."Former Tottenham player and manager Glenn Hoddle, who suffered a cardiac arrest while working for TV in 2018, tweeted:"Thank God Christian is OK. And to those who did the CPR, it's simple, you saved his life as I know so well."
