Christian Eriksen has admitted that he is looking forward to proving himself at Inter Milan in the months ahead.
The Danish midfielder left Tottenham Hotspur in January for a fee of around £16.9m and joined the Italian giants with just six months remaining on his contract in North London (BBC).
Just days after Tottenham’s 2-0 Champions League final defeat at the hands of Liverpool, the midfielder revealed that he wanted to seek a new challenge away from the club which he had joined in 2013 from Ajax (Ekstra Bladet).
After failing to sign a new deal at Tottenham, Eriksen found regular football hard to come by last season having made just 20 Premier League appearances with the vast majority coming from the bench (transfermarkt).
Eriksen admits that he is used to being one of the first names on a team sheet and is ready to prove himself with the Nerazzurri.
Corriere dello Sport had suggested that the Italian giants could accept offers for him this summer, and that intermediaries are already offering the playmaker to Premier League clubs.
“I certainly hope to return and that everyone starts from scratch, then we’ll have to see what the coach really thinks.”
“I was used to always being a starter, now I’m living a new situation,” he added.
“I have to work my way out of it and only then look back and see if I was right or wrong.
“You have to take everything as it comes. I feel I have done my part and overall, I was happy with the choice I made to come to Inter and I still am.”
