Inter CEO Marotta on Eriksen situation: “We should not hold a player back when he asks to leave.”

Speaking ahead of Inter’s match against Torino this afternoon, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta discussed the ongoing situation regarding midfielder Christian Eriksen’s troubles at the club.

His words in Sky Italia, the director pointed out that the Dane had not put forward a demand to leave as of yet, but that should such a request arrive the club would not get in the way of the player’s wishes.

“[Antonio] Conte has already responded exhaustively, I’ll add that clearly we should not hold a player back when he asks to leave. We’ll have to make the right assessments, right now he’s available to Conte, who’s making use of him with regard to the play and to the club.”

“Right now no requests have arrived on Eriksen’s part, but when the time is right we’ll look to find the right arrangement.”

Eriksen, who arrived from North London in the last January transfer window, has struggled to make a significant impact with the Nerazzurri so far. Nevertheless, the Dane has impressed of late on international duty, having scored a double against Iceland last weekend. With his new club, Eriksen has scored one league goal since arriving, as well as netting in last year’s Europa League campaign and in the Coppa Italia.
