Former Italy defender Federico Balzaretti has revealed Christian Eriksen didn’t celebrate Inter’s win against Bologna and walked straight inside the dressing room after the final whistle, but insists: ‘It’s a good sign.’
The Dane joined Inter in January 2020 but has only managed four goal and three assists in 36 appearances since.
He has only 10 appearances in all competitions so far this season and according to multiple reports in Italy, he is set to leave the Nerazzurri in the winter transfer window.
Antonio Conte subbed him in three minutes before the final whistle in Inter’s 3-1 win over Bologna on Saturday.
“Eriksen walked straight inside the dressing room without celebrating the victory,” Balzaretti, who is now a DAZN pundit, said after the game.
“It’s a good sign, if you are angry, it means you have not given up. It’s not something bad after all, it means something burns inside you and you can do more.
“I don’t consider these kind of gestures as negative things.”
Balzaretti played 221 Serie A games as a footballer. He played for Varese, Siena, Torino, Juventus, Fiorentina, Palermo and Roma.
He has 16 caps to his name with Italy national team.
