Christian Eriksen has revealed he has never been in a better phase of his career than he is enjoying at Inter Milan at the moment.

Christian Eriksen reveals his relationship with Conte has taken a better turn and is reveling after Inter’s recent Serie A triumph.

The Danish international initially struggled after joining the Nerazzurri but has revived his career at San Siro since the turn of the year.

Reflecting on the atmosphere at Inter, Eriksen says he has never been in a better place.

“It was hard to win before I joined Inter, perhaps I am living the best moment of my career,” the midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I was willing to learn new things when I arrived. I hadn’t understood I had to follow’s Conte system all the time,” he said.

“Before, I was free to make decisions based on what I saw. It had a lot to do with intuition. Now, there is a general plan we have to follow. We must be ready, know where the teammates are and where they can move.

“I had to learn all this and adapt to a different pace. We spoke in January, and I’ve proved what I am able to do.”

“I have no revenge to take, I just play football. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it doesn’t. This is a sport that evolves quickly, almost every week. Six months ago I was living in a different situation, now we have a trophy and I can say I am really happy here at Inter,” the 29-year-old continued.

Eriksen also spoke on a much better relationship with Antonio Conte and the importance of the manager in their title triumph.

“It was hard to win this title, but we did it with four games remaining. It’s a good starting point, now we can begin a new cycle. It will be hard to win nine titles in a row, but we’ll try to build something beautiful.

“Conte is so important for each one of us, also for the way we play. We follow him and you see that on the pitch. Everyone is so happy to have won with him. However, his stay is not up to me, it depends on the club and him.”
