Inter Milan coach Conte: I want our tactics to fit Eriksen

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte admits he's shaping his tactics and team to bring the best out of Christian Eriksen.

The Dane shone for their shootout Coppa Italia semifinal defeat to Napoli on the weekend.

Conte remarked, “We've been able to work with Eriksen, settling him in the right way and putting him on a par with all the others in both physical and tactical terms. A coach is like a tailor, he has to sew the tactics to measure so they fit the players perfectly."

He also said, “I can see the players are aware if we want to be competitive and fight to win, every single player has to raise his own individual level of performance.

“We have a tough road ahead of us, with no short-cuts, a journey made of hard work and sacrifice, effort and passion, but at the same time great desire and ambition. I think we've started this journey on the right foot and with the belief that we need to face down difficulties."
