Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte has no doubt about Christian Eriksen has the attributes to raise the Nerazzurri’s collective level.

Eriksen has played five times for the Serie A giants since he secured his move from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window and he hasn’t made a major impact on his new side.

However, Conte is not worried as he reckons the Denmark international will need time to adapt to Inter’s style of play.

"I see too much anxiety and little serenity," he said at Wednesday's news conference. "There is great serenity on our part.

"The player wants to make himself available and we are calm.

"Every single player must think about improving himself, without thinking about who is next to him. We need individual growth, which can be put into the collective."
