Christian Eriksen may not play football professionally again, says sports cardiologist

UK football bodies are likely to be 'very strict' about allowing Christian Eriksen to return to the field after his collapse.

UK football bodies were likely to be"very strict" about allowing Eriksen to play again, he added."His cardiac arrest has rocked the entire nation today and that's what happens. It's not just them that it affects, it's the psyche of so many people.

"The good news is he will live, the bad news is he was coming to the end of his career, so would he play another professional football game? That I can't say."In the UK he wouldn't play. We'd be very strict about it."Prof Sharma chairs the FA's expert cardiac consensus group and is a consultant for charity Cardiac Risk In The Young.

He said the causes of Eriksen's cardiac arrest could include an unidentified health condition or a high temperature, but reports that the footballer was awake in hospital were"a very good sign"."The fact he's stable and awake, his outlook is going to be very good," he told the PA news agency.

"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."Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba experienced a similar collapse after suffering a cardiac arrest during a match against Tottenham Hotspur in March 2012.

He had hoped to resume his career but retired from professional football five months later on medical advice.One of his doctors, Sam Mohiddin, told the BBC:"The cardiac arrest is a moment of extreme peril."If you don't get someone out of cardiac arrest things are over. You will not survive.
