Christian Eriksen is stable in hospital and has text teammates at Inter Milan after his horrifying on-pitch collapse yesterday.
The Denmark midfielder, 29, is reported to have texted the team’s WhatsApp group saying ‘I’m good’ late last night.
It comes after millions of football fans watched in horror as the Denmark star fell to the floor and was given CPR during his side’s Euro 2020 match with Finland on Saturday.
The former Tottenham star was rushed to hospital, where is now said to be in a stable condition, according to the Danish FA.
Last night, Giuseppe Marotta, the chief executive of Eriksen’s club side, Inter Milan, provided another ray of hope as he told Italian media that the star had text teammates via the squad’s Whatsapp group.
‘The players are very close and we all immediately communicated with each other after seeing those images,’ Marotta told Rai Sport.
‘We didn’t want to be invasive and so tried to respect his convalescence once we had been reassured.
‘I can only say that 10 minutes ago Eriksen himself sent a message in our internal chat and this confirms the bond between the players.’
Marotta also said that Eriksen’s collapse was not due to Covid-19, but told Italian media he would not be giving any further information on the midfielder’s health – saying he would leave that to officials from Denmark.
He said: ‘He did not have Covid and was not vaccinated either. At this moment, Eriksen is under the guidance of the Danish medical staff.
Today Italian-based journalist Tancredi Palmeri said that Eriksen had ‘posted a text on Inter squad’s whatsapp group, saying ‘I’m good” at 11pm.
Meanwhile, on Sunday morning, the Danish Football Association said in a statement that they had spoken to Eriksen again.
‘This morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen and he has sent his greetings to his team-mates.
