Eriksen is now in stark contrast to those horrifying images of his teammates acting as a human shield and running onto the pitch with his partner in tears. It was an amazing recovery.
The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), which is a type of pacemaker designed to prevent fatal cardiac arrests, was later fitted to the playmaker. This device discharges a jolt that restores normal heart rhythm.
Inter Milan, the former club, ended his contract. Serie A rules prohibit footballers from playing in Italy’s top league with an ICD fitted. However, he refused give up on his dream of returning to the beautiful game.
In January, the 30-year-old said that his heart was “not an obstruction” and signed for Brentford English Premier League club Brentford that month.
At the end of February, 259 days after his collapse, he made a West London debut. After receiving rapturous ovation as he left the substitutes’ bench in Newcastle’s defeat, he then started in back to back victories.
Eriksen can be one of the best and most creative midfielders in football.
Erik Ten-Hag, United manager, is leading a complete overhaul of Old Trafford. Fans will hope that Eriksen’s characters will reverse years of underperformance.
Eriksen played in 237 Premier League games, scoring 52 goals and providing 71 assists during his seven-year tenure at Tottenham.
He has been capped 115 time for Denmark and scored 38 goals for his country.
Eriksen stated that Manchester United was a special club and that he couldn’t wait to start playing for them. “It will be an incredible feeling to play at Old Trafford, having had the opportunity to do so many times.
“I’ve seen Erik’s work at Ajax, and I know the amount of preparation he and his staff put in every day. He said, “It is evident that he’s a great coach.”
“I’m even more excited about the future now that I have spoken with him, learned more about his vision for the team and how he wants it to play, and I was able to speak with him. While I have big ambitions in the game, I also know that there are many things I can do. This is the right place to continue my journey.
