Christian Eriksen offers support and advice to Luton’s Tom Lockyer after collapse



| Last Updated:


Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen has offered his support and advice to Luton Town’s Tom Lockyer after he suffered a cardiac arrest during a game last week.

Lockyer, 29, is now in a stable condition and awaiting further tests in hospital. The defender also collapsed during the club’s play-off final win against Coventry City in May.

He was cleared to play again after heart surgery and being given the all-clear, but he will now be fearing for his future in the game after another tragic incident.

One man who might know how Lockyer is feeling at the moment is Eriksen, who experienced a similar situation when he collapsed on the pitch during a Euro 2020 match. The Denmark international suffered a cardiac arrest against Finland which impacted the entire footballing world.

Eriksen was eventually cleared to play football again whilst fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, but the chance of reaching to the top level of the game again seemed slim.

However, the 31-year-old returned to the Premier League with Brentford before making a move to Manchester United and the midfielder has expressed his concern for Lockyer following his collapse.

“Well first of all, I hope he’s okay. I’ve read and seen what’s happened and I hope he’s okay, takes his time, is in a healthy way and his family are there to support him. I cross my fingers that he’s fine,” Erisken told BetFred.

When asked if he had any advice, Eriksen added: “My advice to him would be to make the best decision you can. If the doctors tell you to do something else then you’ve got to respect it and see what you can do.

“There’s nothing that’s going to hold you back, but in the end it all depends on how he’s feeling and what the doctors are saying. He has to make the decision with his family, but he should take his time and focus on himself.”
