Dutch soccer star Christian Eriksen is returning to the pitch just seven months after a horrifying incident at Euro 2020.
Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest during the match and immediately collapsed before receiving CPR on the field. Now, he’s ready to resume his career after an announcement on Instagram.
“Happy to announce that I’ve signed with Brentford Football Club,” Eriksen said on Monday, via TMZ Sports.
“I can’t wait to get started and hopefully I’ll see you all very soon.”
Eriksen terminated his contract with Inter Milan because Italy’s medical laws prevented him from being able to play with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
With Brentford, Eriksen has signed a 6-month contract.
“We have taken an unbelievable opportunity to bring a world-class player to Brentford,” head coach Thomas Frank said.
“He hasn’t trained with a team for 7 months, but has done a lot of work on his own. He is fit but we will need to get him match fit and I am looking forward to seeing him work with the players and staff to get back towards his highest level.”
It will be exciting to see Eriksen back on the pitch as he looks to regain his form.
