Lazio great Di Canio: Eriksen has no Conte connection at Inter Milan

Lazio and West Ham great Paolo di Canio can't see Christian Eriksen making it at Inter Milan with Antonio Conte in charge.

Di Canio says the Dane just isn't the type of player Conte appreciates.

“Eriksen has nothing to do with Conte," insisted Di Canio.

“Both from the character and technical point of view. It's a totally different way to play.

“Eriksen does back heel passes and all that, it is another type of football. Here you can't allow it. He has no emotionality either, whether he wins 4-0 or loses 4-0 he looks the same.

“Conte likes those who get excited and give everything."
