Inter Milan No2 Stellone: Eriksen made difference for Parma win

Inter Milan assistant coach Cristian Stellone praised Christian Eriksen's impact off the bench for victory against Parma.

The Nerazzurri came to life after their substitutions, particularly introducing Alexis Sanchez for Eriksen.

Stellone said, “We created so many chances over the last three games and we have to make more of them. If we had finished them better, we wouldn't be talking about a team that is struggling.

“We changed tactics, brought in the trequartista role for Christian Eriksen, as we are seeking different options and aiming to be more unpredictable when going forward.

“Nobody expects us to have the right balance from the start working with these new systems. It wasn't easy, we did well and thoroughly deserved the victory.

“We take the criticism, but should also take credit where it's due and this win was deserved."
