I guess a couple of routes:
1 - suing Spurs for whether he should have been registerable or not as a player
2 - Suing whoever did the medical (they would probably have some degree of indemnification)
3 - claiming against insurance

be interested to see what it is.


It's not really the same, but the Emiliano Sala transfer to Cardiff is with the CAS in 2022 to make a decision as to whether they are liable for the transfer fee or not.

The cynical one, which, if we are doing I will immediately stop supporting Inter, would be suing Eriksen for his inability to fulfill the contract, kind of similar to how Chelsea sued Mutu. I very much DOUBT this is what we're doing, but just saying what theoretical options could be. I dont know how players are registered in Italy (though I guess employees given tax rates andd growth decrees etc), but conceptually if Eriksen was a subcontracted company (which I could see in football, at least conceptually, albeit doesnt happen AFAIK at least in the Premiership which is where you'd expect it to happen most), we could sue the company "Christian Eriksen" for breach of contract.

What is this?

Why would we sue Spurs, Eriksen or the doctor (who happens to be OUR doctor)? It was 1.5 years after the transfer when the incident happened. Sue Eriksen? Can't quite see the route there (as you suggested, he was just an employee). Doctor? It was widely said after the incident that nothing indicated any heart problems beforehand.

There is really no room for any speculation, it's the insurance which will cover whatever it covers.

What I'm a bit curious is why are we doing this now? AFAIK FIFA should be paying his salary till the summer. Though actually now I remember there might be a ceiling how much they will pay and Eriksen's salary might be over that ceiling, meaning Inter needs to pay something anyway (we probably won't as Eriksen cannot be registered). Maybe Eriksen want this settled now? And/or maybe it's an accounting issue for Inter, we just want his contract out of our books, now.

Doesn't make any sense to me either. Only thing I can think of is if Spurs knew something they didn't tell us, which I doubt.

I'm not saying these are realistic, they're just the parties who are involved who might (conceptually, rather than technically) be sued

re sue eriksen - I agree as well, just looking at Mutu as an exmaple. Obviously Mutu was liable because he took cocaine, its not really Eriksen's fault he has biological problems.

Just speculating on the basis of the tweet which to me strongly implies law suits.

I would go to the original source (not translated one) if I started speculating some law suits. My understanding has been all along it's the insurance which will cover this if anything.

Yeah. Probably a amistranslation, but insurance payouts wouldnt require any legal options ultimately

I do not think there would be a basis for a case in law if Inter attempted to Spurs or the medical provider.

Think about, if there was a problem before he left Spurs and they knew about it, it would have come up in the medical in which case Inter would not have proceeded with the transfer.

The medical provider would have indemnity insurance. The only way Inter could sue them is if they negligently carried out the medical or deliberately omitted and failed to provide Inter with full and proper disclosure of the results.

There is also no way the club would pursue a claim against the player. The claim will be against the insurer.

you'd end up having to sue the medical provider and the insurer would then cover the pay out though, I believe?

I know we won't, but it'd be lovely for Eriksen to get a send off before kickoff for the home game against Torino.

Bring him out before the game, let the fans and players show their appreciation, present him a framed jersey like we do the Inter Forever guys. All that good stuff.

But, like I said, we won't. Probably can't afford the glass frame for the jersey.

It will be done - in January. At least that's what I read this morning.

ALL THE BEST, CHRIS!​


Inter say goodbye to Christian Eriksen after the termination of the player’s contract by mutual consent​



We can still remember that moment, of excitement mixed with expectation. When you're waiting for something you know will be good, you almost want to wait a bit longer so you can enjoy it more.


28 January 2020: the curtains were raised at La Scala theatre, the stage where first appearances are always special. And when class met elegance, Christian Eriksen and Inter, it couldn't be anything but special. There was the Danish maestro weaving his magic in our midfield.


The thud of the ball striking the bar melted into the 'ohhh' of amazement from the Nerazzurri faithful as Christian fired off a rocket free kick from a ridiculous distance, mere centimetres away from glory. From that moment, we knew this was a composer of the finest music.


We shared moments of class, battles, unexpected goals, like when he scored straight from the corner flag against Napoli, along with a few disappointments, like in the summer of that interminable 2019/20 season, when we went on a magnificent run, only to just miss out.


Another free kick, another derby, in the Coppa Italia. An iconic moment in Inter's recent history. A splendid, crucial strike – not just to send us through to the next round, but also to give renewed energy to the story of Christian and Inter, a bond which grew stronger game after game.


Christian was a key figure in our march to the Scudetto – a team effort which Eriksen contributed to with his vision, intuition, passing, assists and goals, including some big ones. Against Napoli. Against Crotone, in what ultimately cilnched the title. Then another delightful free-kick to celebrate the title at San Siro on the last day of the season.


That is our final, happy, wistful memory of Christian on the pitch in an Inter shirt. Because sometimes life takes a turn for the unexpected and sends you down a path you didn't imagine. Every Inter fan, every football fan, looked on in silence, hoping for Christian. Seeing him back in Appiano Gentile with his team-mates, as Italian champions, was a joy to behold and one we will never forget.

Although Inter and Christian are now parting ways, the bond shall never be broken. The good times, the goals, the victories, those Scudetto celebrations with fans outside San Siro – all this will remain forever in Nerazzurri history.

All the best, Chris!

Sad sad day. This guy could give us so much more as we could give him so much more love and affection in the stadium. I really like to see that all his teammates where really happy for him when he scored etc. It shows he was a really good guy and it's so unfair his career at Inter has to end like this. Especially when you remember what he had to overcome before he got f*ckin playtime.

When we announced Inzaghi as Conte's replacement, the first thought i had was if Inzaghi can made Luis Alberto play so good for Lazio, i can't imagine what he can do with Eriksen.
All the best Chris.
