Eriksen is finally adapting to Inter’s style. He has found a way to play in Conte’s unique system. The Dane joined Inter from Spurs in Jan 2020 but endured a trying first 12 months, making little impact. The Dane was out of favour under Conte until the end of January. However, he has enjoyed a period of good form since January. As he featured regularly for Conte’s side as they challenge for the Scudetto, now he is getting more game time in the Inter’s midfield.
Conte started Eriksen again for Sunday’s 1-0 win at home to Cagliari. The Dane helped dictate play in a tough match at San Siro, which eventually ended in victory. Eriksen has adapted to Inter’s world better and understands Italian football and tactics now. He is aware of what Conte wants. Also, he now understands Italian.
Conte is happy as Eriksen is adapting to Inter’s style
“Eriksen has spent a lot of energy adapting to Conte’s defensive structure,” Bisgaard told Danish news outlet Ekstra Bladet on Tuesday. “It’s true that you would expect more of an attacking contribution. But he has also been busy running and covering spaces for Inter. “Inter don’t keep the ball much so it’s a different style of football for him (to what Eriksen is used to). So the two wing-backs are very important and you have Lukaku and Lautaro up front. “The other midfielders aren’t scoring much either.
“If Inter win the Scudetto then Eriksen will have played his part. He reads games well.“He’s done what the team needed from him.”Eriksen seemed almost certain to leave Inter in January when he was being linked with a return to Spurs and a possible loan move to Leicester City. He has since resurrected his career with the Nerazzurri though, with the turning point perhaps coming in the 2-1 Coppa Italia win over AC Milan. Eriksen came off the bench to defeat the Rossoneri with a 97th-minute free-kick.
