Several doctors have suggested that Christian Eriksen should not play any sport which require physical tenacity. Hence, his career as a player is certainly over. No doctors or team would want to take the risk of playing a recovered patient from cardiac arrest.
Even Inter Milan will not be able to field Christian Eriksen next season, as Italy has a ban on such players. With such law in the country, Italy has managed to reduce deaths in sport from more than 3% to less than 1%.
