Inter Milan midfielder Eriksen grateful to Mourinho

Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen appreciates the way Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho treated him before his departure.

The Dane left Spurs last month in somewhat bitter circumstances.

But on Mourinho, he insists: "He could have put me on the bench, but he didn't.

"After I explained my story to him, he said I should be happy and focus on playing for Tottenham.

"When Inter got serious, it was no longer a difficult choice."
