Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte spoke to the media today. The boss talked about the importance of the Lazio match. He emphasized how difficult it would be and the strength of Lazio as a squad.

“It’s a match of a high degree of difficulty, among outsiders. We’re talking about a reality consolidated in the Italian league: last year Lazio won the Coppa Italia and then the Supercoppa. They’re imposing themselves with the level of trophies and grew maintaining their strongest players and adding to them. Last but not least is the great job that Inzaghi has done, who has many years leading the team. It was a development of his work.”

Conte then spoke about Christian Eriksen and the timetable for him starting with the club.

“He’s working with us and is understanding the situations we want from his part. I did something never done before, making him play quickly. With Udinese someone spoke on a performance that wasn’t good and not inside the squad: it was normal, I forced him. There’s the possibility to work, what I did with him is the best thing: he was able to make an impact when he entered. We’ll see him from the beginning in the next matches when I think it’ll be appropriate.”
