Inter Milan midfielder Eriksen has pop at Conte: Ask him why I don't play

Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen has had a pop at coach Antonio Conte.

Speaking with the Danish Football Federation, Eriksen says people need to ask Conte why he's not getting a regular start this season.

He insisted, "This thing should be asked of the coach Antonio Conte...

"Call the coach and talk to him, because the decisions are his. In football there are always ups and downs, only for a few there are always ups.

"How do I manage criticism? I have become better not to think about it, because everyone has an opinion. Especially now that I've moved to Italy, where everyone has an opinion. It's about trusting those around you and not hearing the rest."
