Inter Milan coach Conte happy with Eriksen for Sampdoria win: But we want goals

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was pleased with Christian Eriksen's performance in victory over Sampdoria - but wants more.

Eriksen again played behind the front two for this 2-1 win.

Conte said, “We must continue using these new solutions. We had more time to work with Christian, both tactically and physically, during the lockdown. He has settled in, but must be even more determined and score more goals.

“We're six points off the top with 12 rounds to go. There's no margin for error, whereas Lazio and Juventus can have the odd mistake and get away with it.

“This is why need that ferocity in front of goal, because with a strong lead, we can then relax on the ball."
