Legendary Inter defender and former club captain Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Bergomi has shared his belief that Christian Eriksen can be an important player for Inter.

Eriksen joined the Nerazzurri club on a four and a half year deal in a circa €20 million deal from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in the most recent January transfer window but did not exactly live up to expectations in the games he managed to play before football was brought to an abrupt halt due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Despite his early struggles in the Nerazzurri, Bergomi believes that with a change of tactical system, the 28-year-old Danish international could be a big player for Antonio Conte’s side.

“In order to put him in the conditions to express himself best, a change of system is needed but I do not think Conte will do it initially,” Bergomi remarked in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia during the ‘Sky Calcio Club’ show earlier on today.

“Everyone has now recovered and Inter have a lot of depth in the midfield. Conte can alternate between players and at that point Eriksen can find space.

“Conte’s team found it difficult when they lacked the competitive fury and at that point quality is needed and Eriksen can be important.”

Since his arrival at the club, former Ajax midfielder Eriksen has made eight appearances across all competitions to date in which he scored a single goal and also provided a single assist for his new teammates too.
