After former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen moved to Inter, he faced plenty of challenges at the Italian club. But now, by his own admission, Eriksen is really happy at Inter.
The attacking midfielder has faced plenty of challenges in Italy, but he is now thriving under coach Antonio Conte.
He may even enjoy becoming a Serie A title winner with Inter, who top the Serie A chart this season.
The Danish playmaker headed for the exits at Tottenham in January 2020. And after almost seven years in England, Eriksen moved to Italy.
Adapting to these new surroundings proved problematic, and the 29-year-old saw a move out of Inter mooted, too.
Indeed, he was once in a position where, allegedly, neither the Italians nor any other club wanted him.
But now, Eriksen has played his way back into form. He is a champion in Italy after he learnt to embrace the methods of a demanding coach, Antonio Conte.
Eriksen is really happy at Inter, based on what he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
He spoke of his challenging journey at Inter: “I was willing to learn new things when I arrived.”
Though, he adds quickly: “I hadn’t understood I had to follow Conte’s system all the time.”
“Before, I was free to make decisions based on what I saw,” he explained. “It had a lot to do with intuition.”
“Now, there is a general plan we have to follow,” he spoke of the change in coaching. “We must be ready, know where our team-mates are and where they can move.
“I had to learn all this and adapt to a different pace. We spoke in January, and I’ve proved what I am able to do.”
