Allegri impressed by Erksen influence at Inter Milan

Former Juventus coach Max Allegri has been impressed by Christian Erksen's growing influence on Serie A leaders Inter Milan.

Allegri has likened Eriksen to his time with Paulo Dybala at Juve.

He said, “I think with Eriksen, Inter had to do something similar to what I did with Dybala. When he first arrived from Palermo, I told him, you cannot play as a centre-forward at Juventus.

“At Palermo, you were a centre-forward, but you started 50 metres from the goal. You need to go into a deeper role, because otherwise the whole balance of the team will be off.

“Eriksen arrived from the Premier League, where there aren't as many tactics, they don't close you down so quickly, you have more space to move in. He can be a trequartista there.

“In Italy, if you move him 10 metres further back, he can put the ball wherever he wants."
