Inter Milan great Bergomi: Eriksen doesn't fit in Conte system

Inter Milan great Beppe Bergomi has questioned their deal for Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark captain joined Inter in January from Tottenham and has endured a slow start to his Serie A career.

Bergomi isn't surprised, stating: "Sometimes players are not well known, Eriksen is not a footballer who gives their play an edge.

"He has good feet, he shoots well from the outside, but in a 3-5-2 he can't play as a midfielder.

"He is a midfielder behind the two strikers, but you have to change something to make him play in the best way. And then he is not a footballer that tackles.

"Future as a director? I don't know, he is a midfielder who never fights for it."
