Eriksen has been outstanding for the Nerazzurri since the turn of the year.
“Eriksen has come into the team and given Inter more unpredictability compared to before," Rossi told ?TMW Radio.
“As soon as he understood how we play football in Italy, he started giving the Nerazzurri that little bit extra, like the champion he is."
Rossi also spoke of Matteo Darmian: “I was the first person to play Darmian out wide.
“He played as a centre-back in AC Milan's Primavera team but I didn't think he had the physical structure to succeed in that position.
“Darmian is proving his worth as a wing-back, having waited for his opportunity after coming in from Manchester United.
“Not everyone does that."
