Christian Eriksen on Inter Milan future amid Premier League transfer claims

Christian Eriksen has made it clear that he has no intention of playing a peripheral role at Inter Milan this season.

The Dane made the move from Tottenham to the Italian side in January following seven years in north London.

But already he is struggling to forge a regular role under Antonio Conte at the San Siro having played in one of their opening three games. 

Eriksen spent much of his final six months at Tottenham on the bench before securing his move away and is hopeful of getting minutes under his belt due to the fixture pile up.

He said: "I don’t want to sit on the bench for the whole season. I hope this isn’t the coach’s or the club’s intentions.

“There will be an incredible number of matches in a short time, and now we also have three national team matches in a few days.

"The Champions League starts when we get back to their respective clubs, so there will be a lot of games to play.

“I’m sure I’ll probably have my minutes. So it depends a lot on the people on the outside and I myself expect this moment to come.

“I find myself at a point where perhaps I had never been in a club team before.

"I got off to a great start after arriving at Inter in January and tried to show off… then we stopped because of coronavirus and it went little up and down."

The 28-year-old was Tottenham's creator in chief for much of his time at the club, but feels he may have fallen foul of his own high expectations.

Does Eriksen deserve to be getting more game time at Inter? Have your say here.

He continued: “People’s thinking and expectations of me as a player is to be decisive in every game, and that wasn’t the case.

"That’s why people from the outside look at me differently now.

“Obviously you become less patient when you have experience and have tried different things… in the end it is always unpleasant to sit on the bench.”
