Inter Milan coach Conte denies publicly touting for Eriksen signing

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte denies he's been publicly trying to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Conte again addressed the criticism of Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho after Sunday's 1-1 draw with Lecce.

He said, “I never said anything unusual about the January transfer marking making it difficult for all coaches. Every time I say something, it always gets amplified or twisted by the media.

“I repeat, I am happy with these players. The club is making its evaluations, we must try to keep working if we want to maintain a solid points average.

“The club has to decide if it wants to do something, if it wants to do it at a good price for the market or take a different approach. I am just a coach, I leave that to them."
