Eriksen: It was the right decision to join Inter

Christian Eriksen believes his decision to leave Tottenham for Inter was the right one as he continues to adapt to life in Serie A. 

The 28-year-old claimed the assist for Romelu Lukaku's opener on Sunday as Nerazzurri claimed a 2-1 win against Sampdoria to keep their slim Scudetto hopes alive.

Eriksen also found the back of the net last time out in a Coppa Italia clash against Napoli with the Denmark international proving a worthy addition to Antonio Conte's side. 

After seemingly falling out with Spurs, Eriksen believes his decision to join Inter has been justified since his arrival. 

“Things keep getting better, I think it was the right decision to come here," Eriksen told Sky via Inter's official website.

"I’ve been welcomed very well with a lot of warmth from both the fans and my teammates. I’m proud to be here and of the fact that Inter wanted me.

"I’m disappointed to not experience the atmosphere put on by the fans at the stadium but things are going very well with everyone."

Eriksen was initially criticised after his first few appearances for Inter with Paolo Di Canio claiming he would become a problem for Conte

But while the Dane himself admits he's yet to perform at his best, Eriksen is adamant he can make a difference at Inter. 

"In the first half, there was lots of space and I benefited from that before Sampdoria closed up in the second and I wasn’t able to have the impact that I’d have liked," he said. 

"I don’t think that you’ve seen the true Eriksen. I can improve further and I hope to score more, I did so against Napoli but it didn’t help the team so it doesn’t matter for me and it was just a lucky effort.

"I had a few chances tonight and perhaps I rushed the strikes too much and I’ll look to do better in the future."

Conte was pleased with how Eriksen had settled at the San Siro but explained he wanted more goals from the Danish playmaker.

"We had the chance to work with him. We had the time to improve from both physical and tactical point of view," Conte told a news conference.

"Nowadays he fits our project but he needs to be more decisive because he had many chances to score and he must score.

"But I am pleased the way he played, as the team, because we are going to play again in three days and those three points will be decisive for us."
