AC Milan Defender Kjaer: “I Know That Inter’s Christian Eriksen Won’t Give Up”
AC Milan defender Simon Kjaer discussed the difficult situation at Inter involving Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We are very close friends, we talk to each other every week and as soon as we can see each other.
“It reminds me of my situation in Bergamo, sometimes the ideas and methods of a coach are very good for you, sometimes less so. I know he won’t give up.”
He then touched on which forwards are the most difficult to defend against.
“It depends on the match. Inter, for example, have two great strikers, but due to his characteristics Lautaro has put me in more difficulty than Lukaku, more mobile, more unpredictable.
“And then there’s always Ronaldo, in the area he’s almost unmarkable.”
The 28-year-old Eriksen, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2024, has struggled to impress since arriving in Milan in the January transfer window, in a deal worth around €20 million.
The player does not seem to be a good match for coach Antonio Conte’s tactical system, despite the 51-year-old Italian changing the formation to try and better accommodate the Dane.
Eriksen has not been quiet about his unhappiness in Milan, commenting on the lack of play time earlier this week and in the last international break, frustrating Inter’s management.
The Nerazzurri are now prepared to sell the former Tottenham man in the upcoming January transfer window.
