Christian Eriksen admits his move to Inter Milan is not what he ‘dreamed of’ and has suggested he is open to leaving the club in search of regular first-team football.
The Denmark international joined Inter during the January transfer window from Tottenham but has failed to command an automatic place under Antonio Conte, starting just three league fixtures so far this season for the Italian side.
Eriksen’s performances have seen him struggle to replicate the displays he produced during an impressive six-and-a-half-year spell in the Premier League, where the 28-year-old became just the second player in the division’s history – after David Beckham – to register 10+ assists in four consecutive campaigns.
Eriksen has now expressed his disappointment at his lack of minutes at Inter and admits his move to Italy has not worked out as hoped.
“This isn’t what I dreamed of,” Eriksen told TV2. “All players want to play as much as possible, but the coach decides who gets to go on the pitch.
“It is a strange situation, as the fans want to see me playing more and so would I, but the coach has different ideas and as a player I have to respect that.”
Reports have suggested that Inter could be open to allowing the midfielder to leave during the winter window, with a host of Premier League clubs likely to be monitoring developments after Eriksen suggested he would be open to a San Siro exit.
“I am concentrating on my football, then when the transfer window opens we will see if something will happen or not,” he added.
