“Eriksen important for Inter,” says the Inter CEO Beppe Marotta after the recent loss against Juventus. Eriksen has proved his worth for the Nerazzurri in the last few games. The Dane has been on the bench for most of the season. And it is no surprise that Conte is responsible for the same. He was unable to settle under Conte’s system and Conte failed to provide chances to him. Eriksen came to Inter with dreams of playing in Serie A. However, his dreams were shattered due to the circumstances and minimal playtime.
Eriksen was so completely out of favour for Conte. Thus, Inter put him on the transfer list back in November last year. He moved to Inter after playing impressively well for Tottenham Spurs. Now, Eriksen is in the twilight of his career and his little playtime worried his fans and his National team coach. In fact, Kasper Hjulmand criticized Conte for keeping a talented midfielder like Eriksen on the bench for this long. He further expressed his concerns over Eriksen losing form.
“Eriksen important for Inter,” the Nerazzurri finally realize
Inter management took the decision to put Eriksen on the transfers list for this January window. They wanted him to receive the deserved playtime. His move away was to benefit the Nerazzurri financially. Inter are struggling financially for a while and potential transfers were their only hope. However, since there was not enough cash, Inter did not buy anyone.
In fact, Conte denied ‘wanting’ any new players and chose to work with the existing ones. Afterwards, in the quarter-finals match against AC Milan, Eriksen scored a free-kick in the 97th minute. The Dane helped Inter walk out with a victory over the city rivals in a 2-1 win. Ever since Eriksen has become the hero for Inter. And despite playing in the various positions, he has not failed to impress. The Dane has been a piece of good news for Conte and his hard work in the training shows that.
