Former player claims Eriksen is under more pressure at Inter Milan

Christian Eriksen’s uncertain future at Tottenham Hotspur was finally decided in January when he completed a £16.9million move to Inter Milan (Sky Sports).

The Dane revealed just days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool that he wanted to seek a new challenge away from North London whilst also inviting interest from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).

A move to the Spanish capital failed to materialise in the summer which left the 28-year-old having to play a bit-part role until the window re-opened in January.

Former Denmark international Klaus Berggreen who played in Italy for Pisa, Roma and Torino during the 1980’s believe that Eriksen is under more pressure to perform in Serie A than at Tottenham.

Eriksen has made just four appearances in Serie A, with each coming from the bench and is yet to score in the Italian top flight (transfermarkt).

He has however found the back of the net for his side side in the Europa League when he played the full 90 minutes of the first leg against Ludogorets last month.

Berggreen told Tuttomercatoweb: “The important thing is give him a chance to fit in. He has made himself appreciated in England where there is far less pressure than In Italy. He needs time to get to know your football, then maybe he can score on a free kick and it changes everything.

“He also has to deal with a huge stress that is in Italian football, I know because I lived it. He has to learn his football, in Italy you are further forward tactically, you know mark it tight and he has to be ready for this situation. But he has the precise and powerful shooting weapon. If he scores, the spark goes off.”
