Antonio Conte to Rai Sport: “Christian Eriksen will stay here at Inter. He’s not leaving because we’re not signing any player, so we won’t let him leave the club. I’m so happy for his goal”. No Tottenham and no Leicester, Conte says. 🇩🇰 #Inter #THFC #LCFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) January 26, 2021
As per this piece of ITK that we published 3-months ago, Christian Eriksen was never a Tottenham target. It was sad to see that Fabrizio Romano had allowed himself to become part of the disinformation cycle in recent weeks, and perpetuate the myth that there was genuine interest in the Dane from anyone in the Premier League, when in fact all that was in existence was campaign from Eriksen’s agents who were scrambling to get their boy out of Italy.
Conte has spoken, and now we can all move on with our lives. It would be remiss of me not to ask what goes on in the minds of some fans, who actually began to believe that the player would be worth bringing back again.
Several years ago, Eriksen went into a downward spiral; one that has yet to consistently correct itself. He’s expensive and he’s ageing. These quotes from Conte are beyond welcome.
