Intermediate Christian Eriksen directed concerns about his lack of game time to his manager Antonio Conte, as the Dane struggles to make an impact in his new surroundings.
Denmark joined Inter for about €20 m in January after refusing to sign a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur. However, since the signing, Eriksen has struggled to keep a regular position and was also offered by the Italian club during the transfer window.
During a Q&A organized by the Danish FA, through Football Italia, Eriksen answered questions from fans-including one asking why he’s not playing in San Siro.
Eriksen replied, “This has to be asked of the coach. Call him and talk to him, because he’s the one who makes the decisions. There are always ups and downs in football, there is just a handful out there who always have highs. I’ve grown easier not to worry about [criticism] because everybody has an opinion. Especially now that I’ve moved to Italy, where everyone has an opinion. It’s about trusting the people around you and not believing the rest.”
So far this season, Eriksen has made six appearances for Inter, three of them from the start, but he hasn’t finished 90 minutes at any point. He also did not record a single goal or assist during the latest campaign.
