Inter Milan coach Conte: I've given Eriksen chances

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte has defended his management of Christian Eriksen.

Conte has also ruled out playing the Dane in a sitting role.

“I always say that I make the choices for the good of Inter," Conte said at a press conference.

“I think Christian had plenty of opportunities, he played more than other players. He will start or come off the bench when I deem it appropriate, otherwise I will make other decisions.

"Christian has important skills, he can kick the ball with both feet. If you transform him entirely by putting him in front of the defence, you take away his greatest strength."
