Inter Milan coach Conte: Eriksen improving; he now understands what we want

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was eager to share the praise around his players after victory over Lazio.

Romleu Lukaku scored twice in the 3-1 win.

Conte said, “Romelu and the whole team gave a great response. Lautaro did really well, so did Ivan Perisic, Marcelo Brozovic, the defenders. They all stepped up.

“Some were starting to murmur about Lukaku after the Coppa Italia and a few opaque performances, suggesting he had some psychological blowback from that, but there are moments when you are not at 100 per cent.

“He came back firing on all cylinders tonight and we need this Romelu. We need this determination and passion from everyone in the team.

Christian Eriksen is starting to understand what we want from him and I think the fact he played last week and tonight shows he's really growing. This is the path, everyone needs to feel they are protagonists and we can count on everybody.

“We know there is only one objective, and that is to make Inter proud."
