Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has confessed that he was sad to see Denmark worldwide Christian Eriksen leave the club during the January transfer window. "It is a huge honour to have played with him and I wish him all the best". I felt I had to be honest.

"I read that I had a bad influence on Tottenham's dressing room, that I was a "persona non grata" because of my desire to leave". Inter Milan have been playing on a different level when compared to AC Milan and I see there being a big gap between the two teams.

"England, for the last few years, was very hectic", Eriksen told BBC Sport.

Eriksen, whose contract was due to expire in June, said he had worked to improve his form in the first part of the campaign in which Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as manager and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

When asked about the 27-year-old's contribution, Conte said he was pleased with playmaker's performance and insists he only needs time to adapt to his new surroundings. He didn't do that.

'In Manchester I could train every day with him, that was the most lovely thing for me.

Game Prediction: Inter win a tight Milan Derby, so I am backing Inter Milan -105. "It was more as an extra rather than in the starting XI of course". "We did speak to them of course and we did hear what was possible and what wasn't possible". To stay in the Premier League would have been an easy solution.

"But, in the end, me personally, I wanted a new challenge".

"In my head and for my body, it is good that I am in a new place and I can start again". "Once Inter came up it really wasn't a hard choice".
