German doctor Jens Kleinefeld was one of the medics who helped save Eriksen's life.
Speaking to Fox Sports he revealed the conversation between them when Christian regained consciousness: “About 30 seconds later, the player opened his eyes and I could talk to him directly.
“That was a very moving moment, because in such medical emergencies in everyday life, the chances of success are much lower.”
He asked the player: “Well, are you back with us?” and the attacking midfielder then replied: “Yes, I am back with you. For f***s sake, I’m only 29 years old!”
“That's when I knew the brain wasn't damaged and he had fully returned,” Kleinefeld added.
The Inter Milan midfielder required immediate medical attention and was shifted to a hospital where his condition stabilised.
