Danish footballer Christian Eriksen had to stay in hospital after his collapse, but according to his consultant, he is on the mend. “We heard each other this morning. He was joking, he was in a good mood, he’s fine,” Martin Scotts of Gazzetta dello Sport (Mon) said in an interview on Sunday. A Danish Football Association spokesman, Jako Heuer, also reported that Eriksen is in stable and good condition.
“We all want to understand what happened to him, and he also wants doctors to do a thorough check-up, and that takes time,” Scotts added. 29-year-old midfielder Eriksen suffered a heart attack shortly before the break in the group game against Finland on Saturday and had to be resuscitated on the field. His condition is stable in hospital in Copenhagen.
“He was happy because he saw the amount of love that surrounded him. He received news from all over the world,” Schutes said of his visit to the pro from Italian champions Inter Milan. “Half the world has progressed, everyone is worried,” the counselor said of empathy after the public meltdown. “Christian does not give up. He and his family want to thank everyone.”
Eriksen will remain under observation in hospital on Monday and “maybe Tuesday”. “Now he has to recover, his wife and parents are with him,” Scotts said. The midfielder also follows the Danish league matches: “In any case, he wants to support his team against Belgium as a fan.”
