Noted Italian football journalist Mario Sconcerti has slammed Inter attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen for his performance in Inter’s Champions League group stage opener against Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday night.
The Danish national team player was granted a rare opportunity to start and hardly grasped the opportunity with both hands with him continuing to leave a lot to be desired with his performances for the Nerazzurri club.
This season former Ajax player Eriksen has made four appearances across all competitions to date but has failed to make any goal contributions.
“Inter played worse than they did against AC Milan, they were complex and predictable. Eriksen played a little better than he did against AC Milan, but they are nuances for amateurs,” Sconcerti explained as part of his latest column in Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera, which appeared in yesterday’s print edition of the Milanese news outlet.
“In reality he has remained a foreign body. It is now a serious case, hardly ever recoverable. He doesn’t even seem to care much. He’s dimensionless, nothing’s his problem.”
Sconcerti proceeded to criticise the Inter team as a whole which currently seems highly reliant on club record transfer signing Romelu Lukaku, who scored each of Inter’s goals in last night’s 2-2 draw with the Bundesliga club.
“The Inter of now is almost only Lukaku, the matches are now a head to head between him and the opponents. As for the rest of Inter, they are like Conte, they are never happy, they never enjoy themselves.
“They play with Spartan like professionalism. It is always the same, it is no coincidence that quality players are in difficulty, like Eriksen, Perisic, Vidal, Kolarov and Sanchez. It’s like there was no freedom of expression.”
