Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte affirms that Christian Eriksen has been given plenty of chances to prove his worth to the team at the San Siro.

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte has insisted that Christian Eriksen has had "many opportunities" to make a name for himself at San Siro.

The former Tottenham Hotspur man has struggled to star in Serie A since arriving in January and is yet to register a goal or assist for the Nerazzurri in the current campaign.

Eriksen has not become a nailed-on starter under Conte at San Siro, but the Inter manager insists that the playmaker has been given plenty of chances to prove himself over the past few months.

Speaking to reporters, Conte said: "I don't know about the language. As I said before, I always make choices for the good of Inter and therefore I try to do everything in the right way.

"Eriksen has had many opportunities since the beginning of the year and has played more than many teammates. When I deem it appropriate, he will play in the opening 11 or in a game in progress, otherwise I will make other decisions.

"As for the role, in my opinion he cannot play in front of the defence. He has an important shot, right and left, so putting him in front of the defence would totally distort him. This is my technical evaluation."

Eriksen's struggles in Italy have seen him linked with a swift move back to the Premier League, with a swap deal for Manchester United's Fred rumoured to be on the cards should Inter decide to sell.
