Christian Eriksen signed for Brentford recently but Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is expecting a reunion with his old player in the future.

Antonio Conte has revealed that he would love to work with Christian Eriksen following their stint together at Inter Milan.

After a heartbreaking period for the Denmark international, he joined Brentford to get back to his normal football life. Eriksen had to end his contract with the Italian champions by mutual consent due to his heart condition.

The 29-year-old had to get a defibrillator fitted to his heart and consequently could not participate in Serie A. He, therefore, had to terminate had to look for other possibilities in order to play football.

Back in January 2020, Eriksen transferred to Conte’s Inter Milan for a €20 million deal. Now, the current Tottenham manager admits that he longs to work with his old teammate. The Dane has agreed to a six months contract with an option to extend further.

Conte said at a press conference: “For sure, Eriksen is part of Tottenham’s story and to come back here could be a good opportunity for me, him and the club.”

“I am the first person to be happy to see him again on the pitch. We spent a good time at Inter, we won the league and we spent two important seasons together and I wish him the best. You don’t know what can happen in the future. It’d be good for me to have him again and work together.”
