Inter CEO Marotta all but confirms Eriksen departure in January

Speaking before Inter’s 3-0 win this afternoon over Sassuolo, club CEO Beppe Marotta discussed midfielder Christian Eriksen’s situation, all but confirming that the Dane would be on the way out.

Speaking to Sky Italia, he noted that the former Spurs midfielder was nevertheless a top player, but one who did not fit within the manager’s plans.

“If by January Eriksen will have played little, he will be the first to ask for a transfer. We have to do it without any controversy from one side or the other, simply considering it a positive operation on the transfer market which hasn’t been functional for technical and tactical reasons.”

“Will Eriksen be useful for Inter on the transfer market in January? I think functional is the correct term. It happens, the history of football is full of such cases, where there are players who end up not fitting into a general idea within the playing system.”

“Last January we picked up a great deal on the market, we bought him for 20 million, and for everyone he’s a top player. You then have difficulties, but the manager has the right to pick the starting eleven that will give him the best chances.”
