Eriksen tells Danish fans to call Conte and ask him why he is not playing at Inter Milan

The Danish problem

Christian Eriksen’s decision to leave Spurs is looking increasingly likely to have been a mistake. Whilst Spurs trophy drought continues, the Danish international was a regular starter and adored by the fans.

Since moving to Inter Milan, Eriksen’s opportunities have become more greatly limited. Coach Antonio Conte has chopped and changed his systems and allowed the likes of Nicolo Barella further time in more advanced roles.

Despite this, Eriksen has started half of the Serie A and Champions League fixtures this season. Although he Dane is yet to complete 90 minutes.

“This must be asked to the coach,” Eriksen said replying to a question on a Danish FA Q&A session asking about his lack of game time.

“Call him and talk to him, because he is the one who makes decisions. Ups and downs are always there in football, there are only a few ones out there who have always highs. I’ve become better at not thinking about [criticism], because everyone has an opinion.

“Especially now that I’ve moved to Italy, where everyone has an opinion. It’s about trusting those around you and not hearing the rest.”#

Conflicting signs

Two weeks prior, Antonio Conte was asked on whether he sees space for Eriksen in his Inter side. The Italian coach was encouraging and seemingly confirmed the midfielder would see more game time.

“If he plays little or less at Inter, I don’t know. For me, he’s playing the right amount while respecting the team,” said Conte.

“I can make mistakes, but I’m happy with what Christian brings to the group and I think he is too. There will be space for him, as for all the others. It will be a long and exhausting season.”

However, recent reports have suggested that Inter Milan would be willing to sell Eriksen were a suitable offer to arrive. Calcio Mercato reports that a bid as low as 20 million euros would be enough to tempt the Nerazzurri to part ways.

The report states that fellow Serie A sides, Juve, Roma, Lazio and rivals Milan would all be interested.

Inter Milan face Real Madrid in the Champions League where Eriksen could feature but at this stage it is anyone’s guess.
