Eriksen on Inter exit: ‘This isn’t what I dreamed of’

Christian Eriksen has admitted that he could leave Inter in the upcoming January transfer window.

With his Tottenham contract running out in the summer of 2020, Spurs decided to cash in on Eriksen in January in order to avoid losing him for free, with the Dane leaving to join Antonio Conte’s side in Serie A.

  • Despite arriving to much fanfare, he has failed to lock down a regular starting position with the Nerazzurri, starting eight times in the league in 2019/20 after January, while he has started just three games in the 2020/21 Serie A campaign so far.

    Speculation has intensified that Eriksen could leave San Siro just one year after joining, with a possible return to Spurs mentioned as well as a potential move to PSG.

    For the player himself, he has been disappointed by his stay in Italy so far, saying it’s not like he dreamed it would be.

    “This isn’t what I dreamed of,” Eriksen told TV2.

    “All players want to play as much as possible, but the coach decides who gets to go on the pitch.

    “It is a strange situation, as the fans want to see me playing more and so would I, but the coach has different ideas and as a player I have to respect that.”

    Although not giving much away, the former Spurs and Ajax midfielder says he will assess his options when the window opens.

    “I am concentrating on my football, then when the transfer window opens we will see if something will happen or not,” he added.

    Eriksen is currently with the Denmark squad ahead of their two Nations League matches against Iceland and Belgium.
