Simone Inzaghi: “Christian Eriksen Would Have Fit Right In At This Inter”

Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that it is unfortunate that midfielder Christian Eriksen never got the chance to play in this iteration of the Nerazzurri.

Speaking to InterTV after yesterday’s 5-0 win over Salernitana in Serie A, the coach gave the view that the Dane would have been able to play at his best in this Inter side.

Eriksen’s departure from Inter was confirmed yesterday, as the 29-year-old will have not chance of being able to return to the pitch in Italy due to health and safety regulations and must move elsewhere in order to have a chance to play again.

The Dane had grown into an important player for Inter last season, becoming a nailed-on starter in the second half of the season especially as the team marched to the Scudetto under Antonio Conte.

This campaign, however, the Dane has been on the sidelines recovering from his cardiac arrest at the Euros, and his official exit confirms that fans will never get to see him play a part in Inzaghi’s version of the team.

Inzaghi began by giving his immediate reaction to the 5-0 win, stating that “The guys did well in a very serious and important match, we knew we had to take the right approach so as not to let them get into the game and we did.”

He went on that “A squad and a team that is playing very well, regardless of who is chosen to start and who comes on as a substitute is something I’m very proud of as a coach.”

“Unfortunately I can only include eleven plus the five who come on,” he went on, “and I’m sorry for this because for everyone deserves to play based on how they play, but unfortunately we can’t do this.”

On the departed Eriksen the coach stated that “I think that he would have fit in well.”

“I’m sorry not to have coached him, but I wish him very good luck,” he continued. “I’m happy because I know he will come back as strong as he always was.”

The coach concluded that “The team is doing well, we are doing well on the pitch, we play well and get results.”

“We have to continue like this, there is still a long way to go, the first round is not finished yet,” he emphasized, “on Wednesday we have another highly demanding game that we will have to be at our best for.”
